Dart Bike To Work Week

Dart Bike To Work Week

For those that don’t know May is National Bike Month and next week, for many cities, is Bike to Work Week. I wanted to draw the attention of my Dallas readers (not sure I have any…but in case I do) to an event this Saturday that’s sponsored by Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART), the DART Bike and Ride Advisory Panel, the DART Bicycle Club and the City of Dallas – Parks and Recreation Department.

Bike to Work Week – May 11 – 15 – is coming up fast! Are you and your bike ready? Do you know how to use the bike racks on DART buses and trains?

“Get Ready to Safely Bike to Work Week”
Saturday, May 9, 9 a.m. – Noon
White Rock Lake – Winfrey Point

FREE
* bike minor tune-ups – proper fitting, air, and brake adjustments – from local bicycle shops
* T-shirts, headbands and wrist straps
* water and other refreshments
* demonstrations of how to load and unload your bike on the new DART bus bike racks, etc.

If I were going to be in town this weekend I’d probably time my Saturday ride to be able to check this out.

Is your city doing anything for National Bike Month or Bike to Work Week? Tell us about it in the comments.
