There was also a bike raffle, food and face painting for kids to enjoy. Not only is the event about teaching safety, but parents say it's about bringing the community together.

"It opens up everybody, the children and adults, to different activities going on in the community,” said Melissa Ciccarelli of Albany. "It gets people together and out and about."

May is National Bike Safety Month.
