Provo City Mayor John Curtis will join community members on a three-mile bike ride on Tuesday.
Provo Mayor John Curtis will be joining the public for a bike ride at 8 a.m. tomorrow to celebrate National Bike Month. The ride will begin at the Historic County Courthouse at 51 S. University Ave and last for about three miles.

UTA and Provo City are sponsoring a free Bike to Work Day event as a part of Utah Bike Month, which will include the mayors of Salt Lake City and Orem joining their cities for similar events.

Provo’s Bike to Work Day will begin at 7:30 a.m. tomorrow, and will include free food, free bike tune-ups and free bike helmets given to the first 50 participants to arrive.

Children of at least eight years of age are allowed and encouraged to join the bike ride, as long as they are accompanied by an adult.

Utah Bike Month is held every May as part of National Bike Month, an initiative run by the League of American Bicyclists to demonstrate the variety of reasons why people use bikes, such as saving money or being environmentally conscious.
