Bike Month Kick off Event, Saturday, May 7

Lots of cycling events in Raleigh on Saturday -- including a fashion show. Hop on your two wheeler and join us for the festivities. I'll be working a booth on Saturday afternoon.

Saturday, May 7, 11am - Noon
- Raffish* Ride at NCSU Bell Tower
Bring your feather boa or your blue suede shoes - or whatever you want to wear for this stylish ride from the Bell Tower to the Kick Off Event in Downtown Raleigh. Get dolled up for a group ride to the runway.
*(adj.) displaying a charming, free-spirited disregard for the conventions of society or approved behavior.

Saturday, May 7, 12:30pm and 2pm
-Project Bikeway Fashion Show at City Plaza
GoTriangle and NC State's Wolftrails program will host a "bike fashion" showcase in response to the lack of hybride attire available for professionals that bike to work. Project Bikeway designs will be showcased twice at the event, first at 12:30pm and again at 2:00pm.

Saturday, May 7, Noon - 3pm

- Bike Month Kick-Off Event at City Plaza
Join fellow cyclists as we kick off Bike Month with free bike checks by REI, bicycle safety stations for the whole family, materials & information on how to bike around Raleigh safely and efficiently. New this year is Project Bikeway, a bicycle commuter fashion show, created by NCSU. Free beverages provided by Vitamin Water.

Interesting "City of Raleigh" webpage ... IF one knows where the Bell Tower is ... IF one knows where City Plaza is.

Otherwise, a MAP on that website might be a useful thing.

I couldn't figure out how to suggest the above on the website ... maybe, if you agree and have contacts, you might suggest to whomever that a MAP might be a useful thing.
