Michiana Bike-to-Work Week

With spring in the air, South Bend, Mishawaka and the Michiana Bicycle Coalition, announce that June is Michiana Bike Month; June 2 through 6 is Bike-To-Work Week and Monday, June 2nd is Bike-To-Work Day. The National and Indiana bike to work week is in May, however it will be celebrated later in Michiana to take advantage of the weather.

Mayors Luecke and Rea will be taking part in the festivities. Everyone in Michiana is encouraged to try cycling for fun, fitness or transportation. On Bike-To-Work Day, cyclists will gather at the Jon R. Hunt Plaza in front of the Morris Performing Arts Center in South Bend or at Beutter Park in Mishawaka. There will be a fun ride, free coffee, juice, bagels and fruit for participating cyclists. Live entertainment will be provided throughout the day and several businesses and organizations, including the St Joe Valley Greens, will also be on hand to provide information about sustainable living.

Mark your calendar, check the air on your bike’s tires and plan on riding your bike on Monday, June 2nd.
