Councilwoman hosts New Year’s community bike ride to promote healthy living

Councilwoman Erika Green hosts community bike ride to promote healthy habits

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - In Baton Rouge Friday, Councilwoman Erika Green hosted a community bike ride.

It was all about promoting healthy lifestyle choices, not just heading into the New Year, but all year long, and to talk about bike safety as more people are getting active. Some of the riders say it’s easier to get going when you’re doing it with others.

“It’s really fun. It helps bring people together. It helps get the kids excited and hopefully some of the kids turn loose the computers and the hand games and come on out and ride, but I love it myself because it helps keep me physically fit,” said Sherman Jones, one of the participants of the ride.

The fun-filled event also featured music, a bike decorating contest, goodie bags, and giveaways.
