In recognition of Bike Month, the City will host a free biking event for the community Saturday, May 5, 12 – 3 p.m. at the Dublin Community Recreation Center, featuring:
- Two-mile bike ride with Dublin City Council, Dublin Police Bike Unit and Dublin Bicycle Ambassadors
- Information tents from local biking organizations
- Bike repair demonstrations
- Safety resources and tips
- Bike donation station
- Free refreshments
The bike ride with Dublin City Council members will take place at 2 p.m., departing from the event. Participants should bring their own bike. Helmets for use during the ride will be provided while supplies last.
Franklinton Cycle Works will be accepting donated bicycles for their Earn-a-Bike program for the homeless and working poor, or for sale to supplement shop expenses. They also accept bike helmets, locks, lights and other bike components or accessories.
Use the spring weather as an excuse to take a ride during Bike Month! Tell us why you ride on the Dublin paths with #SoDublin. Happy cycling!
