The City of Edmond will hold an Open Streets-style event from 2PM to 4PM on Sunday, November 3rd to dedicate the installation and opening of their first bike lane at Ayers and University Drive.
The event will take place along University Drive which will be converted to a car-free, pedestrian- and bike-friendly street for the day. Kick-off will be at 2PM with a ribbon-cutting ceremony to officially open Edmond’s first bike lane followed by a group ride lead by members of Edmond City Council and the Edmond Bicycle Committee. A new public art installation, “Love My Bike” by San Diego-based artist Amos Robinson, will also be unveiled in Gossett Park.
Additionally, the event will feature bike education and information on Edmond’s trail development, healthy refreshments, music, children’s activities and a bike rodeo. A local bike shop will be on hand to offer bike tune-ups for cyclists and families who wish to take advantage of the car-free street.
