City to Partner with Wood County Park District for Black Swamp Glow Roll

Friday, September 15, 2023

In partnership with the Wood County Park District, the City of Bowling Green will be hosting a nocturnal, family-friendly, bright bike ride along the Slippery Elm Trail.   The ride will meet at the Black Swamp Preserve on Friday, September 15th at 7:00 PM. Riders will learn important safety tips for riding at night and Bicycle Safety Commission members will install free bike lights for those who need them.  Show off your creativity by bringing glow sticks and glow-in-the dark bike decorations to light up the trail.  Provided decorations and glow sticks are limited at the program venue.   Decorating is from 7:00 – 7:45, and the ride begins at 8:00 PM.  Stops will feature nocturnal facts and features along the trail as we ride. This ride will cover roughly 5 miles down the Slippery Elm Trail and back.

Rides are free, family-friendly, and open to everyone. Each rider is required to wear a properly-fitted helmet and ride a correctly-sized bicycle in safe, working mechanical order. It is highly recommended that young riders, who are still learning to ride, participate via a tow behind trailer or child bike seat. These rides are meant to be more recreational in nature and will travel at a speed comfortable for all riders.   

To register for this ride, please visit the Wood County Park District’s Program page or call (419) 353-1897.
