At Carnegie Public Library’s “Bike Bash” on Friday, children decorated their bikes, trikes, and scooters in red, white, and blue, rode around the block, and then conquered an obstacle course on the library black top. All “bikers” in attendance received a prize for their efforts, with top honors for best bike decoration.

At the bike bash, children decorated their bikes, trikes, and scooters in red, white, and blue, rode merrily around the block, and then conquered an obstacle course on the library black top. All “bikers” in attendance received a prize for their efforts, with top honors for best bike decoration!
