If you have kids and you’re holding out for the right time to get them on bikes, the Brooklyn 2016 KiDS Bike Forum, happening in Bed Stuy this weekend, might be for you.

Hosted by Brooklyn Transition Center and sponsored by Kidical Mass NYC, Bike New York, and other orgs and businesses, Sunday’s event is aimed at helping families with children get comfortable riding on city streets. Meet parents and kids who are already riding, try out kid-friendly cargo bikes, or learn how to get your kid’s bike ready to roll.

The forum is free. Helmets are required, and preregistration requested, for the Bike New York kids’ bike skills class, for children age 9 and up.

The fun starts at 10 a.m. at 185 Ellery Street.
