Participants set off from Pepin Park at last year's Kellen Memorial Bike Ride.

The 5th Annual Kellen Memorial Bike Ride will bring bicyclists to Pepin Park Saturday.

The ride begins at 10:30 a.m. at the park and registration to ride is at 9 a.m. or on their website at http://www.kellenmemorialride.org.

Along with the ride, activities will include a cone bicycle race and a slowest bicycle race.

The ride is named after a young Havre resident who was killed when he was hit by a truck as he crossed the viaduct while walking his bicycle.

Twelve bicycles will be given away at the event and a custom-painted electric guitar will be raffled off.

The proceeds from a guitar raffle will go toward scholarships for music lessons for children. Last year, three children were awarded the scholarship.

To apply for the scholarship, a parent or student can pick an application up at the student's school office at the beginning of the school year.

Registration is free. There will also be a free barbecue after the event.
