Calling all kids: Grab your two-wheeled machines and come on out to Aldergrove’s annual Bike Jam.

Calling all kids: Grab your two-wheeled machines and come on out to Aldergrove’s annual Bike Jam.

Bike Jam 6 is happening on Saturday, June 11 from 12 to 3 p.m. at Aldergrove Athletic Park. The local sponsors will provide free lunch, a free draw for a Norco BMX (value of $409) and a Havoc custom scooter ($199), and lots of other great prizes.

“This has become an Aldergrove tradition that continues to expand to include riders of all ages. It’s great to see kids as young as two years old ripping it up on the simple courses we lay out. We encourage everyone to bring out the whole family, whether they can ride or not, to watch what our local youth can do,” says Heath MacKenzie, one of the event organizers.

The Bike Jam has grown to include a large scooter segment. This year Havoc Pro Scooters (www.havocpro.com) is bringing out their team to wow the community with their world class talent.

There will also be an expanded obstacle course for younger riders as well as more BMX competitions as requested by local youth.

This is a completely free event sponsored by local businesses and service groups.

“It’s something that the local youth start to ask about early in the spring – it’s awesome to see the momentum build every year but the best thing about it is that it happens because a group of committed people, who care about Aldergrove, step up each year to let the youth know that they are valued and that their community is behind them,” says MacKenzie.

Special thanks to the Aldergrove Business Association, Aldergrove Credit Union, Aldergrove Alliance Church, Bonetti Meats, Cranky’s Bike Shop, Extra Foods, EZE Rent Equipment Rentals, Havoc Pro Scooters, J Visser Art and Design, LE Steel, Otter Co-op, Rotary Club of Aldergrove, Township of Langley, Urbaneco and Valcraft Printing for helping to make this event happen.
