2 Wheels 1 City

 
Time: May 5, 2012 @3pm to 6pm(for details see below)


Where: West Wing of the Indianapolis City Market, 222 E. Market St.


What: Free Admission, Secure Bike Parking, Food, Vendors, Sun King Beer, Kids games & More.

Come join INDYCOG and Sun King Brewery while we celebrate bicycling in Indianapolis at our 3rd annual 2 Wheels 1 City. In short, 2 Wheels 1 City is a day of bicycle related events, music and fun! The proceeds from this event help raise money for INDYCOG & Freewheelin' Community Bikes.

A bicycle fundraising drive for Freewheelin' is also part of the day's activities. Freewheelin' is a community bike initiative that teaches at-risk youth valuable bike repair and maintenance skills. Freewheelin' accepts gently-used bikes that are repaired by volunteer mechanics and then sold at reasonable prices to the public. Join us as we celebrate the ever-growing bike culture in Indianapolis, and see the future site of the City Market station for bicycle commuters in the east wing.

Secure bike parking is offered for all of those who arrive via our favorite mode of transportation, however if you need to drive, don't fret as we are working on designated parking areas in close proximity.

There will be local food vendors, many of them from the City Market, with lots of tasty options. Of course there will be local beer from our good friends at Sun King Brewery, with all the proceeds going to a good cause.
