The Promise Zone Bike Ride event will be held Saturday, June 17 from 10 a.m. to noon, starting and ending at Garden Homes Square, 2600 W. Atkinson Ave. The slow paced, 5-mile ride is a family-friendly event suitable for anyone who can ride a bike.

The goal of the ride is to connect communities to improve access to resources. The route will take riders through historic neighborhoods, past the Century City Tower and Century City I development, near major employers including DRS Power & Control Technologies and Integrated Mail, near schools including Samuel Clemens, Milwaukee Collegiate Academy, and Hope Christian School, along natural environmental amenities including Lincoln Creek and the Oak Leaf Trail, and many more sites!

“I am excited about this event to inspire residents and families to get active this summer,” Common Council President Ashanti Hamilton said. “This Promise Zones bike ride is a great opportunity to bring the community together and highlight the importance of health, being physically active, and increasing the awareness of the assets we have right here in our community that support healthy living.”

Following the bike ride, celebrations in Garden Home Square will continue with games and educational activities organized by the Wisconsin Bike Federation’s “Share and Be Aware” community ambassadors and the annual Garden Homes “Praise 4 Peace March & Rally” organized by Crossing Jordan Ministries.
