The 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 22, 2010.
These events coincide with National Bike Month and Bike To Work week. (See the previous post for even more activities.) Here’s a brief overview of scheduled events:
Minor Bike Emergency Clinic (for on-the-go fixes), in front of Heartland Bicycles at Mosley and Douglas. The first 100 participants will receive a free gift.
The Bicycle X-Change Maintenance Clinic, at the American Red Cross building at 1900 E. Douglas. The first 100 participants will receive a free t-shirt designed with safety in mind.
Bike Safety Clinic for Beginners conducted by the Wichita Police Department Community Policing, also at the American Red Cross building.
