The Batesville Parks and Recreation Department is leading a Bike Batesville program free to the public each week for the rest of the summer.
Starting today, bike riders are invited to meet every Thursday evening in the south parking lot of the community center at 6:30, with the riding starting at 6:45 p.m.
The program is for ages 10 and up.
"We will ride approximately 10 miles and should take around and hour and a half to complete," said Brandon Shrader, city recreation superintendent.
The Bike Batesville program will run through the last Thursday in August (the 30th).
"This is a beginner friendly bike ride, it's not a race so we will be take our time, enjoy the ride, the people, and all the great scenery," Shrader continued. "It's a family ride so come join the fun and bring all your friends! Please bring a helmet to keep everyone safe; they are mandatory for the ride."
Riders may wish to join the Batesville Parks Facebook group "Bike Batesville."
