Cliff Drive Kid’s Bike Obstacle Challenge

Dave and Suzanne Campbell moved with their three daughters to the Historic Northeast in 2016, and they immediately fell in love with Cliff Drive. That’s what inspired Dave to organize the Cliff Drive Kid’s Bike Obstacle Challenge.

“Our kids love riding their bikes in Cliff Drive, therefore I thought it would be fun to share the experience with other kids,” Dave said. “Then the idea of adding a few obstacles along the way added friendly competition and challenge for the kids.”

The bicycle challenge took place on Saturday, May 5th at 10 a.m. A handful of families invited by the Campbells met at the west gates of Cliff Drive, where Dave explained the rules. The kids were going to ride their bicycles through Cliff Drive to the east gates, stopping at obstacles along that way that included a water balloon toss, trivia, jump roping, and hula hooping.

“I’d like it to be an annual event where more of the neighborhood gets involved,” Campbell said. “My goal would be to have 50-75 kids participate. I see the event building deeper relationships within the neighborhood where people feel more connected.”
