Tomorrow will be a full day for our staff as we will be getting hundreds of people riding bikes at two respective events throughout the day! To start off, we’re partnering with Indiana Farm Bureau to deliver Kids Riding Bikes® at the annual Indy Criterium. Situated in the heart of Downtown Indianapolis on Monument Circle, the Indy Crit draws over 500 racers from across the Midwest each year. We’ve been honored to participate in Crit since Nine13sports’ early days back in 2012. It will be a walk-up format to allow for as much participation as possible throughout the day utilizing our stationary bicycle simulators. The course is identical to one of the many courses found in our normal programming and we’ll be recording the times of the participants once they’ve finished our course. We’ll have a board for the participants to place their final times underneath their respective division and to provide goals for the general public to focus on and surpass.
Once we’re all set up at the Indy Crit, we’ll be having part of our team disperse to head down to Shelbyville for the Get Healthy Here Farmers Market in partnership with Major Hospital. The festivities begin at 8 a.m. on the circle in downtown Shelbyville and will wrap up around noon. It will feature local food, activities, information, and much more! This event is being held to increase awareness about health and wellness and one that we’ve been fortunate to partake in since 2014.
We’ll be setting up tomorrow at the Indy Crit around 7:15 a.m. and we’ll be wrapping up once everything is concluded in the evening. We’re beyond excited to get the community engaged and moving on our bikes and to educate the general public about the influence Kids Riding Bikes makes on thousands of youth each year! We hope to see you out and about tomorrow at either of the respective events!
