Come join in the celebration of the bicycle – Wichita, Kansas

Three groups are teaming up in celebration of the bicycle. Douglas Design District, Wichita Downtown Development Corporation and the Delano District are launching the “I Bike Douglas” movement with a day of activities and bike related fun on Saturday, May 22nd.

The day in celebration of the bike will promote the benefits of biking while also increasing the general public’s awareness and respect for bicycle riders.

“More and more people are opting to ride bikes,” said event organizer, Ann Keefer. “We want the day to serve as a visible reminder to motorists that they are sharing the road, but probably the best way to educate motorists on bicyclists’ rights to the road is to ride respectfully. So, bike safety and maintenance clinics will be a major part of the day.”
