Southborough – The Southborough Recreation Department, 21 Highland St., invites parents and students to try out its newest equipment – two bikes designed for developmentally disabled children aged 5 to 14 – Wednesday, March 11, from 3-4 p.m. The bikes were purchased from Freedom Concepts through a grant recently received from the Southborough Community Fund. These bikes are able to be quickly adjusted in several ways to accommodate children of all sizes. They are lightweight in design and allow students who are not able to ride a traditional two-wheeled bicycle an opportunity to pedal and propel a safely designed bike to the best of their abilities.
Southborough Recreation is anticipating offering a four-week class for developmentally disabled students to give them an opportunity to ride one of the bikes and engage in other activities. This class will be supervised by Frank Nellenback, Northborough/Southborough Regional District adapted physical education teacher, and volunteers from Trottier Middle School.
To sign up for the March 11 event, call the office at 508-229-4452.
