Gearin' up for Bike 2 Work Day

The 6th Annual B2W Day is comin' up..... On Friday May 16. The Mayor will award trophies to individuals who ride the farthest, and to the organization that has the most riders. The three downtown bicycle shops all contributed items for the drawing. Some pretty cool stuff. Plus one of the shops threw in a $25 gift certificate.

As in the previous B2W Days, the guitar stylings of Darby McGrann will entertain the crowd, and lunch will be provided by Mayor Cole, who will award trophies and draw the winning tickets for the prizes.
