This Week in “Bicycle”

If you haven’t made any plans this week, there are a few things on the Dayton cycling¬† to do list:

On Monday, the City of Dayton is holding a public involvement meeting at the
Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission Center for Regional Cooperation, 1000 West Third Street, Dayton, OH 45402
The meeting starts at 4pm and will be your chance to hear more and provide comments about the proposed East Fifth Street/ Hamilton Avenue Bikeway, the Broadway Street Bikeway, the East Fifth Street Bike Ramps, the Keowee Street/ Helena Street Bikeway, and the Eastern Hills Bikeway.
If you can’t attend the meeting but want to get involved, please e-mail Joe Weinel, joe.weinel@daytonohio.gov, with your comments and questions.

On Tuesday, Courteous Mass Dayton and Bike Miami Valley will join the Artemis Center, a local domestic violence shelter, on Living Dayton. We will talk a little about cycling in Dayton and, more importantly, about Dayton Girls Gone Riding, a women only ride on September 14thr, hosted by the Artemis Center.
While we are at it, if you want to join our group on the ride, Courteous Mass Dayton and Bike Miami Valley are more than happy to have you in the Women of BMV Group.

On Wednesday, Peace on Fifth, on 508 Fifth Street, is hosting the Peace Ride. The ride starts at 6pm, all are welcome, a shorter route for kids is available. For more info check out the Facebook event and the Dayton Local announcement.

That is it, so far. Stay tuned for the September route announcement and other events. Until then we see you in the streets.
