Promise Zone Ride, Saturday May 12 – 2018
May 12 @ 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
We are still on, rain or shine, and it looks like we’ll get a nice break in the weather for Saturday morning. See you Saturday! Bring your bike at 9am for a light tune-up, and arrive by 10am for the ride.
Join us for the 2nd Annual “Promise Zone Ride” on Saturday, May 12, 2018 – 10am to noon at Garden Homes Park!
Building on a great start last year, we’re hoping to grow this family-friendly event. We have a slow and enjoyable 5-mile route open to riders of all levels.
This year a new partner, Dream Bikes, will provide bike mechanics to help complete minor tune-up repairs prior to the ride. Pull that old bike out of your garage and we’ll help get it in working order. We encourage close-toed shoes and a helmet for safety.
Come early at 9am for a bike tuneup, and make sure you’ve arrived by 10am when we’ll roll out. The start and end location is Garden Homes Park, 2600 W Atkinson Ave. Light snacks and water will be provided.
Partners and Sponsors include:
While you’re getting excited for the Promise Zone Bike Ride, take a moment to follow the Complete Streets Milwaukee campaign. NWSCDC is a partner on this campaign to make our City of Milwaukee streets safer for all – especially for people walking, biking, and taking transit – while safely sharing space with cars and trucks.
NWSCDC is collecting resident input about streets that could be improved. Are you affected by reckless driving, or intersections that are too difficult to cross? Let us know by submitting a message here. Then sign the Complete Streets Petition so your voice will be heard! We’ll have more discussion and activities around #safestreetsforall on May 12 and our community organizers are connecting with block clubs and neighborhood associations as well.
