Avid cyclists, casual riders, or those who may need to rediscover their passion for biking are invited to take the Geneva Bike Challenge this summer.
Residents can participate in the Bike Challenge by:
- Downloading and printing a copy of the challenge, or pick one up at City Hall, 22 S. First St.
- Completing the online safety check.
- Submitting a completed challenge card to be eligible for a drawing.
The City's Strategic Plan Advisory Committee will draw from those who complete the challenge to award local gift certificates and other prizes.
After people take their bikes out this summer, the Committee will be seeking to engage the community on how the City can make improvements to be more bike-friendly.
Residents can share their feedback at Bike Night, which runs from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 4 at the Geneva Public Library, 227 S. Seventh St. The evening also will feature a raffle, ice cream, Geneva Police bike safety checks, and additional activities.
The Committee will take input from Bike Night and review the City's 2004 Bike Plan to develop recommendations for bike and pedestrian improvements that will be presented to the City Council in the future.
