Dear readers, did you know that we’ve entered national bike month? This is an annual bicycle awareness program that runs through May. Durham is participating, with a few events scheduled for this weekend:
- A bike parade, which is a component of the much larger “Thanksgiving in Spring” event. The parade itself runs from 2-3 on Saturday, starting at Central Park, and participants are encouraged to deck out their rides in creative designs.
- The ATT Bridge Celebration Bike Ride, a free event (but with registration required) to celebrate the opening of the I-40 bridge and the completion of the Durham portion of the ATT. There are 15 and 30 mile versions of the ride, which starts at noon on Sunday.
- The “Cruiser Ride” will be held on Monday at 7 p.m. starting at the CBC Plaza.
The full schedule for the rest of the month is available on the BPAC web site.
Personally, I try to live every month like it’s bike month, and I hope you guys find time to get out there and ride while the weather is good. It looks like it might finally stop tornadoing for a few days!
