Aldergrove Bike Jam celebrates 10 years of radness

Youth can participate in various competitions at the free event on Saturday, June 22

Aldergrove is celebrating its 10th annual Bike Jam on Saturday, June 22. 

Between 12 and 3 p.m., the free outdoor family event will feature races and jump contests throughout the Aldergrove Bike Park. And although Bike Jam caters to two-wheeled bicycles, there will also be a scooter competition and other creative races.

Thanks to the support of local businesses and organizations, the event is able to continue bringing local youth together to have fun, said Heath MacKenzie, owner of Cranky's Bike Shop and one of the event organizers. 

"It is great to see young people out on bikes of all sizes and conditions, riding their hearts out and feeling valued by the rest of the community," he said. 

New this year will be a scooter component, which MacKenzie said was added due to its growing popularity. 

There will also be multiple prizes for riders to win, plus a scooter giveaway by Havoc Scooters and bike giveaway by Cranky's Bike Shop at the end of the event. 

MacKenzie added that a local Aldergrove youth group will be on site volunteering to help the event run. 

The Bike Park is located within Aldergrove Athletic Park, 26845 27th Ave.

Designed to accommodate all ages and rider abilities, the Bike Park includes features for beginners and advanced riders including return hill with entry drops, a series of progressive jump lines, wood skills features, BMX Pump Track and mini 4x course with wall ride.

There are also grassy areas surrounding the Bike Park for spectators.
