Essentia Health to host Bike Challenge May 11


Children are invited with their parents to the Bike Challenge from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, May 11, in the Brainerd High School lower parking lot. Bring a bike and helmet.

Bicycling is a favorite pastime for all ages, but understanding safety first is the key to staying safe and having fun. Children will visit various stations with their bikes for a review of bicycle safety rules, a bicycle safety check and a check for a properly fitted helmet.
