Dust Off Your Bike Week offers free community bicycle rides for everyone

In the Stevens Point area, there are thousands of bicycles that have been gathering dust for quite some time. In the spirit of spring cleaning, Dust Off Your Bike Week, May 10-15, will motivate area residents to get those bicycles rolling again.

Presented by Point Area Bicycle Service (PABS) and Poky Pedaling Stevens Point (PPSP), Dust Off Your Bike Week offers several free bicycle rides and classes to encourage everyone to experience the joy of riding their bicycle.

If there is anything more fun than riding bikes, it is riding bikes with other people who like riding bikes. That’s what Dust Off Your Bike Week is all about. There are rides for everyone: slow, fast, young, old, newbie, pro, and anyone in-between. So Dust Off Your Bike and come join the fun.

The schedule for Dust Off Your Bike Week appears below. More information including brief descriptions of each ride can be found here.

All events meet at PABS (except for the Slide Ride). PABS is located at 1311 Strongs Ave. in downtown Stevens Point between Main St and Clark St.
