I’ve been pretty busy lately but here’s a quick update of some things going on around town that I’m involved with
If you have been down to the Rivermarket recently you may have noticed the addition of Bobby’s Bike Hike in the southwest corner of the building. It is owned and operated by Little Rock native, Jeremy Lewno. Jeremy’s father, Bobby, ran a bus touring company here in town. Though born and raised in Little Rock, Jeremy has spent the past few years building Bobby’s Bike Hike in Chicago, which has become the biggest touring company in the city. Now he has moved back home to continue his success here in Little Rock. And yours truly will be one of the tour guides! So stop by check it out. We should start giving tours on saturdays very shortly. I have been studying like crazy to learn all I can about the history of all the tour stops
I have also been working on a side project with James trying to stir up some interest about a piece I wrote for the Arkansas Times’ Big Idea’s Issue back in January about bridging the chasm between the Old State House and the riverfront, more widely known as La Harpe Boulevard. But here is the piece I wrote.
And Finally, Bike to work week Is coming up soon, May 14th through 18th, and Bike to Work Day is the 18th for those who may want to try it just one day. I’ll have some more info later, but there are a couple of different activities going on that week to try and get more people out on their bikes. And I am personally going to offer up 6 of these super awesome Bike Little Rock reflective bands!
I wear mine pretty regularly around town. Not only does it look cool AND lets people see me on the street, but it also keeps my pants leg out of the chain. Like I said, it’s pretty sweet. So I will offer up one each, to any three readers who bike the furthest to work that week and any three riders with the best (or most entertaining) bike to work story.
