Bike Piqua changes route of slow roll

PIQUA – Bike Piqua will be changing the route of their slow bike ride on Sept. 9 to avoid street construction. The public is still invited to take part in this neighborhood bike ride.

Bike Piqua will meet at 6 p.m. on Sept. 9 behind Susie’s Big Dipper, which is located on the 300 block of North Main Street. They will then ride on Greene Street to North Street to Madison Avenue to Cherry Street, instead of the previously planned ride through Candlewood. There will be a 10-minute discussion on bike safety and traffic laws held the beginning of the ride. Bike Piqua will also be riding by historic homes in this area and will provide various facts about some of those homes as they ride by them. Families are encouraged to join in the slow bike ride.
