In addition to rides, there will be special offers at select merchants in each of the districts.

Heights Bicycle Coalition will host a family-friendly ride originating and ending at Peace Park on Saturday at 3 p.m. On Saturday, May 4 (known to Star Wars fans as May the Fourth be With You), riders are encouraged to arrive in Star Wars’ costumes to become eligible for prizes as part of the Star Wars Bar Crawl Ride through Cedar Lee, Cedar Fairmount and Coventry.

Green Tara Yoga in Cedar Fairmount will offer a special Stretching for Bicyclists at 6 p.m. on Friday, May 3 and at 11 a.m. on Saturday, May 4. Those who ride their bikes to Green Tara Yoga’s studio that day may take a free yoga class from 9:30-11 a.m.

Confluence Cycle and Yoga on Coventry will offer a special 9 a.m. drop-in special on Friday, May 3, and at 9:45 a.m. on Saturday, May 4. Code Bike 10 is required for both. The place will also offer an outdoor fitness ride at 8:30 a.m. on Sunday, May 5.

Heights Bicycle Coalition will have six mechanics offering repairs on Saturday, May 4, at the parking lot adjacent to Nighttown. Self service bike stations are also open throughout the weekend at Heights Library and at the Northwest Corner of Lee and Superior across from Cain Park.
