Plan to ride a bike to work Thursday, June 9
The bandannas have arrived and registration is underway at Third Street Market and Northern Cycle for Bike to Work Day. Thursday, June 9 has been declared a day to pedal into Park Rapids.
There is no charge to participate. Simply head in to a registration station and fill out the form. The first 112 registrants will be given a signature red bandanna.
The day of the race, Prize Police will be patrolling, awarding prizes to those wearing the handkerchief.
Prizes to date include bike helmets and a bike computer from Northern Cycle, gift packages from Muskie Waters in Nevis and a gift certificate from Park Salon.
And you take home a nifty new kerchief.
No bike? Take a hike. Walkers are also encouraged.
No job? No prob.
This event is open to all ages - kids to elders.
Gather a team for some inner-office fun.
