Prescott Alternative Transportation (PAT) released the calendar of events for this year's Bike Month. Bike Month is officially scheduled to run from April 12 through May 16, and the first event, the Bike Month Kick-Off Party at Granite Mountain Brewing Co., is scheduled for 5 p.m. Friday April 11 which is "Bike Month Eve."
Prescott's Bike Month will culminate, as usual, on National Ride to Work Day (May 16) with Prescott's annual "Ride to Work with the Mayor" event. In the intervening weeks are a variety of rides and events sponsored by Bike Prescott, the Prescott Mountain Bike Alliance (PMBA), and the local bike shops. Other events during the "Month" include PAT's annual fundraiser, the "Pedals and Pumps Gala" on April 19, and of course the Whiskey Off-Road weekend April 25-27.
PAT representatives note that while this year's calendar is full of events, it is rather short on details, and interested parties are encouraged to check the online calendar at www.prescottbikeped.org for all details, updates and additions. Details and updates will also be shared on facebook, and facebook users are encouraged to "friend" Prescott Bike Month to get information sent to their news feed.
