Bicyclists of all ages and abilities are invited to bring their bikes downtown for Cycling Sunday, from 2 to 5 p.m. Sept. 26. Streets will be closed to motor vehicles so cyclists, walkers, and skaters can enjoy this free, human-powered event.
During Cycling Sunday, downtown streets bounded by Fifth Street, Spruce Street, Holly Avenue, and Spring Street will be closed to motor vehicles, said Matthew Burczyk, the bicycle and pedestrian coordinator for the Winston-Salem urban area.
“Our first two Cycling Sundays were quite popular so we anticipate a good turnout for this fall event,” Burczyk said.
Helmets are required. Participants can register at the Spring Street entrance to the Forsyth County Public Library. Registered participants will be eligible to win either an adult or a child bicycle. This event will also feature a bicycle rodeo to help teach children bicycling safety skills. Helmet-fitting will also be available.
Cycling Sunday is sponsored by the Forsyth County Department of Public Health, Safe Kids of the Northwest Piedmont, and the Winston-Salem Bicycle & Pedestrian Program.
