City of Fort Walton Beach

The Fort Walton Beach Police Department will host its second community bike ride on Saturday, Dec. 9 starting at 9 a.m. at the Northwest Florida Fairgrounds.

  • The event kicks off with a preview of the fairground’s Winter Wonderland village featuring holiday-themed pallet houses. 

Riders will then depart on a 3.5-mile route through the Kenwood neighborhoodbefore returning to the fairgrounds.

The inaugural community ride earlier this month saw a strong turnout. The police department expects another good showing at this month’s event.

Florida law requires children under 16 to wear a bicycle helmet. Officers will be at the fairgrounds at 8:30 a.m. to fit children and adults for free helmets provided through a Florida Department of Transportation grant.

All community members are welcome to bring their bicycles and participate in the ride.
