Bike to Work; Trek the Township

Share this post

laporte bike to work
Today is National Bike to Work Day, with related events in Northwest Indiana, including La Porte and Valparaiso. The Valparaiso Pathways Committee invited community members to meet at the Valparaiso YMCA pavilion on Cumberland Drive, ready to ride this morning, as participants  pedal leisurely downtown, ending at Central Park Plaza where there will be a light snack and water available to the bicyclists.   Anyone who pedals to work at any other locations (business group, families, etc.) and wants to have their mileage counted can call the Park Office and record their mileage for Bike to Work Week (May 13-17, 2013). The grand total of reported miles pedaled this week, can then be calculated into gasoline saved, with the Pathways Committee reporting the total at the next Valparaiso City Council meeting on Monday, May 27th.
Call the Valpo Parks Office at 219.462.5144 or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it with miles pedaled this week.
