Bikes on Broadway set for Sunday

Staff report

The Paducah Parks Services and BikeWorld is hosting Bikes on Broadway on Sunday, a free event for all cyclists, skateboarders and runners.

This is the seventh year for the event, which closes a stretch of Broadway in Paducah to vehicular traffic. 

From 1 until 4 p.m., the public is invited to bring bicycles, skates, skateboards, scooters, tricycles, strollers or running shoes for a fun day of strolling and riding along Broadway. 

Vehicular traffic will not be permitted on Broadway between Fourth and 17th streets, allowing for a safe riding environment.

Also, many of the side streets are not heavily traveled and are great for exploring; however, caution is encouraged as these streets will not be included in the barricaded area. 

BikeWorld will be set up at 17th Street to provide mechanical help and other assistance. 

Motorists can cross Broadway with the assistance of volunteers at the intersections of Ninth Street and 13th Street.

Bikes on Broadway is held the second Sunday of each month through October. Additional 2014 dates are Sept. 14 and Oct. 12. 

The September edition of Bikes on Broadway will be "Riding for Readers" with free gifts and books for riders while supplies last.

Also, donations of gently used children's books will be accepted.

For more information about Parks Department events and activities, visit the Parks Services Department at 1400 H.C. Mathis Drive, visit the website www.paducahky.gov or call 444-8508.
