(WBRE/WYOU-TV) The rain didn’t stop an outdoor community event from happening Sunday in Luzerne County.
As Eyewitness News Reporter Brianna Strunk explains the goal is to encourage families to experience nature together.
With his helmet and training wheels on, 6-year-old Oren Keren is ready to ride around the Luzerne area.
“I’m excited because I like riding my bike on like roads and streets and stuff!” said six-year-old Oren Keren.
Different organizations and departments collaborated to bring this “bike 4 kids” event to life.
“It’s a sport where people have to work together. Even from the municipal side, we have to block off streets, we have to take care of things,” Said Rabbi Yossi Schulman- Organizer
Organizers wanted to bring their community together.
“We’re trying to get people together to focus on kid’s health” Said Rabbi Schulman.
After exploring inside an ambulance and a police cruiser It was time to hit the road.
Bikers chose to ride either two or ten miles.
The kids say getting outside to ride their bikes and jump in this bounce house is a lot more fun than playing on their electronics.
Etan Keren who is 8-years-old told us he likes the bike “Because I like to ride in puddles and get wet!”
Members of the Back Mountain Trail Committee set up this stand, to teach kids about their mission — keeping the trail in tip-top shape.
“This is the old rail bed and it’s important to try and maintain it as a trail because people need places for their health,” Noted Larry Corpus, Back Mountain Trail Committee.
