The bicycle safety festival takes place in Lafayette
Cyclists are invited to the 5th Annual Bike Safety Festival for a day of fun for all ages to educate cyclists and motorists. The event is made possible through a partnership between Lafayette Consolidated Government (LCG), Broussard & David, LLC, Bike Lafayette, Lafayette Public Library and ArtWalk.
Thanks to the generosity of Broussard & David, there is no charge to attend or participate in the activities.
“We continue to hold this event every year to educate cyclists and motorists on bicycle safety and the rules of the road. There has been a cycling boom over the past year in response to the pandemic, leading to families and children to venture down the road for a socially remote way to exercise and enjoy the outdoors, “said joint sponsor and organizer Blake David.” As the end of the season approaches the school year and as summer approaches, cycling awareness is even more essential so that we can make the roads safe for all users.
When: Saturday June 12, 2021, 2 p.m. – 5 p.m.
Where: Sans Souci Park, downtown Lafayette
