This Saturday is the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Downtown Topeka! The Topeka Community Cycle Project, the Kaw Valley Bicycle Club, and Heartland BMX will have “floats” in the parade, and both are open invitation. Take this chance to ride a bike in a slow group and celebrate, community, luck, and bicycles.

The parade is one of Topeka’s biggest community events, and we highly recommend participating! There’s nothing like smiling and waving at 4,500 people on a sunny Saturday.

Staging for TCCP will begin at the bike shop, 423 S. Kansas. Just ride your bike downtown – there won’t be any parking! KVBC and Heartland BMX will be staging early in the main staging area, between 1st and 4th streets on Kansas Ave., and they’re also asking folks to bring candy to hand out to kids along the parade route. Bring out your cargo trikes to make it that much easier!
