The Avenue Bicycle Station, with the support of the IU South Bend Health and Wellness Center held its first biweekly community (family friendly) bike ride on April 16th at 6 p.m. This was definitely NOT the spandex and carbon fiber group. Approximately 15 people (2 kids, 4 teenagers, and a 70 year old woman) of all biking abilities participated in either a 3 or 8 mile route, starting at the Avenue Bicycle Station on Mishawaka Ave in River Park. In addition to a variety of cycling levels, there was quite a variety of bicycles, including a 1970s modified Schwinn (banana seat!), a folding bike, an adult tricycle, a cruiser, and single speed track bikes. The folks on who participated were unique as well.
