With all the excitement over the city talking about extending all the trails, Mayor Don Ness will talk more about some promises and future plans for making more safe bike trails for more people to bike to more places.

The public is invited to celebrate National Bike to Work Day on Friday, May 16 by joining fellow bike enthusiasts for the 3rd annual Mayor’s Bike Ride. Riders will leave Duluth City Hall at Noon and end at Clyde Iron (2920 West 29th Ave North) for a luncheon where Mayor Don Ness and County Commissioner Frank Jewell will speak about the status of various trail and transit projects. Participants will also have the opportunity to pick up information and materials on numerous public projects and bicycling initiatives in our community. Registration for the luncheon is available by clicking here.  Lunch is $15 per person for a pasta buffet.

The Mayor’s Third Annual Bike Ride and Luncheon are part of Bus. Bike. Walk. Month – a month-long celebration that brings together bicyclists, businesses, art hounds, outdoor enthusiasts, active commuters, and families that share a mutual love for busing, biking, and walking. The events of Bus. Bike. Walk. Month will encourage and inspire our community to try new modes of transportation. A detailed listing of all events can be found here.
