The City of Lincoln is partnering with the local bicycling community to encourage residents to participate in Bike to Work Week, May 13 through 20. Two events are planned at the Jayne Snyder Trail Center in Union Plaza:
Both events will feature specially priced refreshments from the Hub Café at the Trail Center.
Those who commit to riding to work at least one day during the week can receive a free reusable bag full of information and coupons (while supplies last) and will be entered in a drawing for prizes. Bicyclists are encouraged to complete pledge sheets prior to the event. Pledge sheets are available at Cycle Works, 27th and Vine, and the Bike Rack, 3321 Pioneers Blvd. BicycLincoln will give registered riders stickers for their helmets or bikes and a list of other businesses offering discounts to participants during the week.
Bikers are strongly encouraged to wear helmets. The City also reminds residents that it is illegal to ride a bike on sidewalks in downtown and other congested districts.
