Mayor Henry encourages residents to celebrate National Bike Month
(April 30, 2014) – Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry is encouraging local residents to celebrate National Bike Month and take part in some of the many activities scheduled throughout May. In particular, the Mayor is inviting residents to ride their bike to work on Friday, May 16 and stop by the City’s Bike to Work Breakfast at Headwaters Park from 6:30-8 a.m. where they can enjoy free Starbucks coffee, bagels from the Bagel Station and sweet treats from Pembroke Bakery.
“The City is committed to incorporating additional bike lanes and bike trails throughout our transportation system in order to encourage more and safer cycling,” said Mayor Henry. “When people ride their bikes instead of drive cars, they help reduce pollution and traffic congestion while also improving their health.”
In addition to the Bike to Work Day Breakfast, numerous other bike month activities are planned in May. Three Rivers Velo Sport, Fort Wayne Outfitters and Bike Depot, Fort4Fitness, Bicycle Friendly Fort Wayne, the Cinema Center, and the Dash In are all offering events and activities to celebrate the month.
