More than 50 cyclists took part in Asheville on Bike’s June 20 “Summer Cycle” event—a rambling tour of some riverside Asheville neighborhoods and routes. In a post-event e-mail, AoB writes:
“Thank you for coming out, supporting Asheville’s businesses, meeting and greeting city-council candidates, promoting urban-cycling culture, and for enjoying the coming of summer with us. Highlights from our wonderful rolling social engagement include: Clingman Cafe, the pedestrian bridge, neighborhood touring, the cemetery, SORBA’s work at Richmond Hill, and the Wedge. Indeed, when we invest this energy into to political process this election cycle, we are planting seeds that will bare our city sustainable transportation options.
We would like to acknowledge Pro Bikes, BioWheels, Youngblood Cycles, Liberty Bikes, and Carolina Fatz for continually supporting us. Also, cheers to ProBikes, BioWheels, and Youngblood’s for supplying us with prizes, patch kits, and tubes.
What would AoB be without local bicycle shops?”
