Are you looking for a fun and safe place for your family to ride their bikes? How about the Sedgwick County Zoo? Their Wheeling Wild bike club events are an affordable and family-friendly option.
Wheeling Wild (formerly known as Wheeling Wild Wednesdays) is designed to be a leisurely bike ride for all ages. Every third Tuesday through October, a guide leads the ride around the zoo. Look for a registration link below.
Small children are welcome as long as they’re either riding a bike, in a bike seat, or in an attached wagon. Children must be accompanied by an adult, of course.
