‘Go By Bike’ June 23; Bike to the Library Week June 19-25

A fun, informative session for all ages, Go By Bike at noon Thursday, June 23, at the Fond du Lac Public Library, will help celebrate Bike to the Library Week. The session, presented by Wisconsin Bike Fed, will cover bicycling laws, essential gear and how to plan safe rides. It will be held in the library’s new Idea Studio on the lower level. It’s free; no registration required.

During Bike to the Library Week, June 19-25, anyone riding their bike to either Fond du Lac Public Library location – Main Library downtown or FDLPL Express near Festival Foods – can stop in and pick up a bookmark with information on how to enter a drawing for special bike-related prizes. FDLPL Express is located just off the Highway 151 stretch of the FDL Loop, the biking and walking path (map and more info at www.fdlloop.com).

Dozens of libraries across the state are participating in Bike to the Library Week, an effort to promote health and reduce emissions put together by the Wisconsin Bike Fed and the UW Global Health Institute. Wisconsin Bike Fed is a nonprofit group dedicated to “make Wisconsin more bikeable” through advancing pro-biking legislation, education and activities.

The Fond du Lac Public Library offers bike locks to check out. Anyone with a valid library account can check out a bike lock for 21 days; ask at any service desk.
