1st Annual Karnes City Family Fun Day

Come and enjoy a 10k bicycle ride at the First Annual Karnes City Family Fun Day on Saturday, June 30th, – and if you don’t want to ride, there’s a run and a walk, too, plus various other activities such as a moon walk, a climbing wall and many many more.

The day starts with a bicycle ride at 8:00 a.m. and will end at around 4 p.m.

The main events are at the city park at the corner of S. Browne and E. Wall streets.

Is it really better not to have laws to make bicyclists wear helmets? I must admit, I’m in two minds about it. There certainly are arguments for and against it. Btw, that’s a controversial discussion in my native Germany, too, with, strangely as it seems, the ADFC [General German Bicyclists’ Club] campaigning against the law. Their argument: fining bicyclists for not wearing a helmet might reduce the number of people who use bicycles, especially for commuting.
