Malden Bike Fair Attracts Many For Fun and Safety Under Sunny Skies

The Malden Bike Fair attracted both old and young under sunny skies at the Ferryway School on Saturday, May 6.

City Councilor Steve Winslow (left) and Malden Mayor Gary Christenson (giving the thumbs up) attended the bike fair.

The fair included free bike safety checks where tires were inflated, brakes tightened, and seats were adjusted. Mass Bike organized a bike skills course which had youngsters riding around obstacles in the open lot at the school. And some 12 bikes, mainly for children, were raffled off.

Several local organizations helped out at the fair, including the YWCA which gave out helmets and the Cambridge Health Alliance which donated helmet decorations. The Malden Kiwanis and Key Club helped out with registration at the event. Also on hand were Bike to the Sea President Janet Green and program manager Agnes Recato

The Malden Fire Department, Police Department, and Cataldo ambulance gave youngsters an inside look at some of their vehicles and equipment. 

The fair was organized by Malden City councilors Peg Crowe and Stephen Winslow. Other politicians seen at the fair included Malden Mayor Gary Christenson, Representative Steven Ultrino, Councillor Craig Spadafora, Carey McDonald, Karen Karen Colón Hayes and School Committee members Keith Bernard and Michael Drummey.
