Dad biking with a trailerFree parking is available at Gateway Family Medicine, 390 W. Salem Avenue, or at the Gateway YWCA, although participants are encouraged to walk or cycle to the event. To park at Gateway Family Medicine, enter from Broad Street as the road will be closed at the Main Street roundabout.

As in the past, city streets around the Southeast Gateway will be closed to motor vehicles so that cyclists, walkers, and skaters of all ages can enjoy themselves without worrying about traffic. Helmets are required for cyclists. The closed streets include Poplar, West, Marshall and part of Salem Avenue toward the roundabout.

Participants can enjoy a variety of activities on the greenway: face painting, corn hole, hula hoops, jump ropes, parachute games, field games, and bike decorating.

As an incentive, the elementary school with the most students participating will receive $400 in PE equipment for their school.

A paved trail through the Southeast Gateway property connects the Cycling Sunday Fun Day course and activities with the Salem Creek Greenway. The Fun Day activities are organized by the Forsyth County Department of Public Health.

The Cycling Sunday Fun Day activities are clustered around the Southeast Gateway but we encourage participants to explore the rest of Salem Creek Greenway beyond these events. To the west, the greenway goes to Marketplace Mall while the greenway extends to Salem Lake on the east.
