(Dublin, OH) May is National Bike Month and the City of Dublin is kicking it off with Cycle de Mayo, a celebration taking place Sunday, May 5, 1 – 3 p.m. at the Dublin Community Recreation Center.
Bike Month is an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of cycling for the environment and our personal well-being. The Cycle de Mayo event will include:
- Informational tents from local organizations including REI, Yay Bikes!, Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission (MORPC), Gohio Commute and Dublin’s SHARE Senior Circulator
- A bike ride led by Dublin Police and Dublin Bike Ambassadors
- A bicycle donation station
The bike ride begins at 2 p.m. following paths leading to the new parking garage in Historic Dublin, which has a bike parking area. Participants will then enjoy free ice cream at Johnson’s Real Ice Cream.
Franklinton Cycle Works will accept donated bicycles for their Earn-a-Bike program for the homeless and working poor, or for sale to supplement shop expenses. They also accept bike helmets, locks, lights and other bike components or accessories.
