We're on the verge of Bike Week, which means Russ "Hot Legs" Johnson wearing spandex shorts and pedaling to City Council meetings again.
kickoff pedal off (?) party is this weekend with a "Ciclovia" street festival called "Sunday Parkways" -- the streets of the Old Northeast are turned over to bicyclists, runners, walkers, roller bladers and anyone who isn't burning gasoline -- on Sunday, May 16, from noon to 4 p.m. Expect live music, dancers, bike tune-ups and Mayor Mark Funkhouser (hopefully not in spandex) and the council members.
Bike Week also gets an early start on Saturday, which starts the "Car-Free Challenge"
to see who can replace the most car trips by walking, biking or busing
it. Play along and you could win a bike.
There are a lot more events, so check out Bike Week's site.
