Our second meeting for Bike Month (May) was last night. The next meeting will be 5:30 pm on Tuesday, February 3rd, at PT’s Coffee, 17th & Washburn.

The goal with Bike Month in Topeka is first, to get all the bike events that are already happening – on the Bike Month calendar. Are you part of a weekly ride that should be on the calendar? Let us know! If you need access to the calendar, get in touch with Karl!

Next, the goal is to make it fun! We’ll be working on a “Block Party” to take place in NOTO toward the end of the month, with food, music, all sorts of entertainment, and some bike stuff, too. It will likely feature the new bikeshare bikes, a Kids’ Bike Rodeo event, and some demonstrations in the street of either freakbikes or trick bikes! The goal is for this to be the one big event, sort of an expo. All will be welcome – just reach out if you or your group would like to set up something for this day.

There was also talk of a few new events, including a series of Dairy Queen rides, a women-only bike event, and a bike art show! If you’d like to get involved with the Block Party or one of these events, please get in touch via email (info at biketopeka) or via the comments below. ‘Til next time!
