Free Wheelin' Wednesday bike rides

This summer, Heights Bicycle Coalition will again host Wednesday-evening rides that showcase our community. These are social rides open to cyclists of all ages. The rides often conclude at a local restaurant or pub for refreshments.

Meet your neighbors and learn more about your community. With most destinations within a few miles via 25-mph tree-lined side streets, the Heights area is ideal for getting around by bike. "Plus," noted longtime cyclist Greg Donley, "you notice the little things, like the sounds of birds, the smell of fresh-cut grass, and the strikingly varied textures of Heights-area road surfaces." Join us for a these fun rides!

Free Wheelin' Wednesday rides start from the Coventry P.E.A.C.E. Park at 6:30 p.m.
