Brooms Up for the 10th Annual Witches of South Walton Ride Oct. 31

A group of women called the Witches of South Walton will trade their broomsticks for bicycles on Halloween morning at 7am for the 10th Annual Witches of South Walton Ride Fly West 30A…making magic for Children’s Volunteer Health Network. In its inaugural year, Fly East 30A, an afternoon ride for the east side of 30A will take place at 4:30pm.

The number of witches has grown to approximately 75 local women who sport witchy costumes and festively decorated “broom cycles,” while casting their spell on spectators and cackling along 30A.

Have Fun But Please Be Safe On Your Bike In SoWal

Yes, friends and neighbors, and especially vacationers, the laws of physics are not in your favor when you are riding a bicycle. It’s simple. You are less protected on a bike than in a car, and you are more difficult to see.  A little bit of caution and prudence can go a long way to even out the situation.

Talk to any Emergency Room physician or nurse, and they will all concur, wear a helmet.  And that doesn’t just go for kids.  Some of the worst injuries occur when youngsters are securely helmeted but the parent or grandparent isn’t. 

Beach Like A Local Kiddo

Inspired by the great entries from this year's “You Are So SoWal If ...” contest, I thought about all the things our local kiddos have to look forward to.
