Family Fun Safari Ride!
The Family Fun Safari Ride sponsored by M&T Bank and PedalPowerkids is a FREE self-guided ride of about 2.6 miles on the paved Kinder Farm Park Trail which will be in public use. No pre-registration is required before the event, but participants must check in and sign a waiver at the Registration Table, next to the Bike Rodeo and then follow the signs around the course. At check-in, each child will receive a lanyard and a Safari “Passport” with a list of animal friends hidden along the course. Each hidden animal will have a stamp alongside it for participants to record in their passport. Parents are also encouraged to take photos at each landmark which can be posted at the Anne Arundel County Lifeline 100 facebook page. After finding as many animals as possible, return to the tent to receive a prize!
The Family Fun Safari Ride will be open 1:30 -3:30pm and participants can check-in and ride the course at your own pace any time during this period. Children may participate in both the Rodeo and Family Fun Safari Ride! The course which has some hills is best suited for children who are comfortable riding a 2-wheel bike accompanied by an adult rider. All participants must wear helmets. Participants are encouraged to bring water bottles.
Please follow these rules and use caution and courtesy near other trail users. The trails are open to others including walkers, runners, dog walkers and other bike riders.
