WHY: To celebrate Opening Day at Victory Field and promote the health, economic, and environmental benefits of bicycling.
Concerns about health, fuel costs, and climate change have led a growing number of Hoosiers to get of their seat and into the saddle. The bike saddle, that is.
On April 7, Indy’s best-known bicycle enthusiast, Mayor Greg Ballard, will join local bicycle advocacy group Indy Cog, the staff of Sun King Brewing Co., and dozens of other cyclists for a special ride to celebrate the start of the 2011 baseball season and raise awareness of the health, economic, and environmental benefits of bicycling. Cyclists will gather at 5 p.m. on April 7 in the parking lot of Sun King Brewing Co. Mayor Ballard will address the cyclists at approximately 5:20 p.m. and riders will depart at approximately 5:30 p.m. for Victory Field, where local bike advocacy group Pedal & Park will provide temporary additional bike parking on site.
The Indianapolis Indians play the visiting Columbus Clippers that night. First pitch is at 7:05 p.m. Tickets for the game can be purchased here.
