  • We’ll have a few dress-up supplies on hand.
  • We do final dressing up, learn the waggle dance ( soooo easy) then ride out around 1230 pm, detouring at times from the Sunday Parkways route to visit bee hives and bee gardens.
  • At Woodlawn and Rigler Parks well Flash Mob ‘em with our waggle dance, sung to “I’m a Honey Bee, Buzzing ‘Round Your Hive”
  • Pass out honey for playing a bee trivia game.
  • Fill out your Bike-a-Bee Passport card.
  • Spin the Bike Wheel of Bee Knowledge – win prizes.
