Are you wanting to get fit? Or lose some weight? Are you trying to reduce your carbon footprint and be better for the environment? Well, bike to work week might just be the perfect solution for you! If you’ve not got a suitable road bike then check out this review on the best commuter bikes because they’re well worth the investment. While it might take some getting used to, you will end up loving the challenge of biking to work! Some of the people that took part last year have carried on doing it all year round.
Join us in the morning for a quick ride with local decision makers!
Kick-off Commuter Ride from City Hall through town back to City Hall — starting Monday at 7am. Ride will start at 7:15.
Come join local elected leaders, officials, your friends and neighbors for a short “commuter” ride through downtown to finish at City Hall for a free breakfast. A big group of courteous cyclists sharing the roads makes a statement. A brick for display in Heritage Square will be given to Kim Austin, the Coconino County Safe Routes to School Coordinator for her efforts in educating kids on how to be safe cyclists. We will also be presented with an official City Proclamation recognizing this week as Flagstaff Bike to Work Week!
Breakfast provided by Peace Surplus.
Lowell Observatory “Mars Hill Challenge Ride”
Mars Hill Road …. yep, you probably know it, the paved ½-mile winding climb from Thorpe Park to the scenic overlook and then up to Lowell Observatory that beckons cyclists to pit their aerobic prowess against its steep 10-12% grade.
As a regular BTWW work site participant, Lowell Observatory is sponsoring the “Mars Hill Challenge Ride” again this year as a featured event.
Ride anytime between 9:00am and 5:00pm on Monday. We challenge local cyclists to bike up Mars Hill to the Lowell Observatory Steele Visitor Center and experience first-hand what Lowell BTWW riders contend with all week long. The reward? A FREE “2 for 1? guest pass to Lowell Observatory to redeem at your leisure along with a refreshing bottle of water. Just show your bike helmet to the front desk greeter in the Visitor Center when you reach the top. For directions and questions, contact Allison Bair, firstname.lastname@example.org, phone: 928-233-3261
Be sure to check out the schedule for the rest of the week!
