“We’re excited to partner with Blue Zones Project to enable more residents to experience Fort Worth on a BCycle,” said Jennifer Grissom, executive director of Fort Worth Bike Sharing. “Not only is it a fun and convenient way to get around town, but it supports natural movement, social interaction and family time – Blue Zones principles known for supporting health and well-being.”

To launch Free First Fri-Yay, Fort Worth residents are invited to a free family-friendly ride from 2-4 p.m. Jan. 3, the first Friday of the year. The ride will start at Gateway Park East Trailhead (5400 E. First St.), site of Fort Worth Bike Sharing’s newest BCycle station, and make a five-mile loop through the park. A two-mile route will be available for those opting for a shorter ride.

Blue Zones Project will be there with additional games and goodies for all ages. Riders can bring their own bikes or reserve a free BCycle by registering online.

Helmets are strongly suggested. A limited supply of helmets will be available for use. It is recommended that children be 5 feet tall to sufficiently ride a BCycle. The event will be held, weather permitting - double check on the Fort Worth Blue Zones Project and Fort Worth Bike Sharing Facebook pages before heading out.
