Pump You Up in the Park – Bike Month Kickoff
Champaign County Bikes is looking for volunteer help in staffing our Bike Month Kick-off event, “Pump You Up at the Park” Sunday May 1st from 1:30 -3:30 PM
“Pump You Up at the Park” is an effort to encourage families and cyclists of all ages to get their bikes out of winter storage, dust them off, and bring them to a nearby park to get the tires properly inflated, seats adjusted, along with a quick safety check.
We will need 3-4 persons at each location to man the stations and help with proper tire inflation, tube repair if needed, as well as an A-B-C quick check to make sure the bikes are safe to ride.
This is also an opportunity for your organization, whether it is one of our great local bikes shops, an Illini 4000 Rider, or the Prairie Cycle Club to promote your organization and its role in supporting active transportation in the Champaign – Urbana community.
The “Pump You Up at the Park” event will be followed by a Family Bike Ride led by Prairie Cycle Club Volunteers at each location starting at 3:30 PM.
Locations for “Pump You Up at the Park” are:
Champaign: Douglas Park
Urbana: Meadowbrook Park
Prairie Park near the Brookens Gymansium
Savoy: Prairie Fields Park
Date/Time:Sunday, May 1, 1:30 – 3:30 PM
Family Ride:Sponsored by Prairie Cycle Club @ 3:30 PM
