**Story updated with correction: The start/finish location for the ride is Kenwood Elementary School.
Come join our police officers for a bicycle tour of the Kenwood neighborhood.
The Fort Walton Beach Police Department will be holding its January Community Bike Ride through the Kenwood neighborhood on Saturday, Jan. 13.
The ride begins and ends at Kenwood Elementary School, 15 Eagle St NE, Fort Walton Beach and will take cyclists on a leisurely ride through that neighborhood and also to the Fort Walton Beach Golf Club nearby.
Beginning at 8:30 a.m., Fort Walton Beach Police Officers will be fitting bicycle riders for free helmets provided by a grant from the Florida Department of Transportation.
Florida law requires all cyclists and passengers under the age of 16 to wear a bicycle helmet. For their safety, we also encourage our adult riders to wear them too.
The Community Bike Ride kicks off at 9 a.m. and will have a police escort.
