Community Bike Rides Planned in conjunction with Uptown Marion Market
Marion’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee is pleased to host a series of community bike rides known as “Pedal Marion” in conjunction with the Marion Chamber’s Uptown Marion Markets this summer.
Bicyclists are encouraged to meet at City Square Park when the market closes, at noon on June 10, July 8 and August 12, to depart on an 8-mile loop around Marion.
“We’re happy to provide an opportunity for folks to get out and get active,” said Mike Barkalow, assistant city engineer/chair of Marion’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee. “These rides showcase the different types of trails and on-street bicycle accommodations we have in Marion and demonstrate their proper usage.”
The rides are open to all ages and the group will travel at a family-friendly pace. Helmets are required, but there is no cost to participate.
