We know it’s stiflingly hot right now but the forecast is for cooler temps on Sunday. It should be a perfect day to enjoy your streets the way they intended to be used — by walking, rolling, and riding on them during Sunday Parkways.

The City has prepared a seven-mile loop of carfree streets for your enjoyment and they’ve stuffed them full of activities, food, entertainment, and activities at four parks along the way. If you have friends in town who need bikes, grab a Biketown bike. Over half of the Parkways route is within the service area and you don’t have to worry about the other half because the city is waiving all out-of-area fees for the duration of the event (11:00 am to 4:00 pm).

Combined with the Connect the Park Blocks event on Saturday followed by the Jade Night Market, this is truly the open streets weekend of the year! Get out there and enjoy it.

Sunday Parkways SE had some hills to climb which was fine with me but not so much for the hundreds of Bike Town bikes, which are cruiser types and weigh more than the average road, cross, or even Mt bike, The riders were struggling on even the smaller hills, I was happy they were being used and Im sure it was the best day yet for the service bur their heavy clunky bikes work better on the flats.

True…but after a week you get used to the extra weight going uphill. Perhaps for some users it was their first time on a bike in a while. Were they getting in your way?

I saw quite a few with balloons tied to them, so helium helps. Most of the people struggling with the hill were kids with no balloons.
