Mayors Pete Buttigieg and Dave Wood, in conjunction with the St. Joseph County Board of County Commissioners invite the community to register for the first annual Mayors’ Bike Ride from 8-12 am on Sunday, May 7, 2017.
The family-friendly, recreational ride will begin at three locations:
Red Barn, St. Patrick's County Park
Howard Park, South Bend
Central Park, Mishawaka
Hosted by Visit South Bend Mishawaka and Bike Michiana Coalition, a non-profit bicycle-advocacy organization, the Mayors’ Ride will also focus on bicycle safety education for children. A series of workshops will be held leading up to the May 7 event that will teach children how to ride safely in and near traffic.
The Mayors’ Ride encourages bicyclists of all ages to enjoy South Bend’s, Mishawaka’s, and St. Joseph County’s connected bikeways and bicycle-friendly infrastructure.
Register now at Mayors' Bike Ride 2017. The event is free of charge, though a $10 per person donation is suggested to help Bike Michiana Coalition with their many education initiatives. All riders must also fill out a waiver.
