Ready to Ride School Break
at The Strong® Museum
April 14–23

Gear up for spring break during Ready to Ride School Break at The Strong museum from Friday, April 14 through Sunday, April 23. Celebrate the joy of bicycles and check out the Hands-On Harley-DavidsonTM exhibit before it rides off.

Create handlebar streamers with craft tubes. Make a license plate with foam letters to attach to your bicycle. Design a bike from colorful pipe cleaners and test your knowledge of bicycle safety. Learn about the Rochester Twilight Criterium—a high-octane, professional cycling race happening in Rochester on August 19.

Then discover how engineers ensure motorcycles have a smooth and fast ride as you check out the Hands-On Harley-DavidsonTM exhibit. Explore a pretend engineering lab and motorcycle dealership, and use science, technology, engineering, and math concepts to dream up a bike design, build a prototype, and take it for a test drive.

All Ready to Ride School Break activities are included with general museum admission fees. Programs underwritten in part by Delta Air Lines, the official airline of The Strong.
