On Saturday, September 18, Alderman Ashanti Hamilton and Alderman Khalif J. Rainey will host the 4th annual Promise Zone Bike Ride event. As in previous years, many partners from Milwaukee are sponsoring this FREE communal ride event and among them this year are the Northwest Side Community Development Corporation (NWSCDC), Black Girls Go Bike, Rails to Trails Conservancy, the Villard Avenue Business Improvement District #19,Red Bike & Green, the Wisconsin Bike Federation, Bublr Bikes, DreamBikes, and the Corridor (BID #37).
This year the neighborhood bike ride will be from 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., starting and ending at Garden Homes Park, 2600 W. Atkinson Ave. As in previous years, the event will serve as a symbol of Milwaukee’s determination in developing and providing opportunities to communities within the 30th Street Corridor.
This year there will also be some highlights to the course/trail for the 4th annual event. The ride will first visit the Green Tech Station, where riders will learn from NWSCDC staff about that space, an outdoor classroom and testing site that is available for educational, community, and industry uses.
Next up, they will get details about Hundred Acre LLC’s hydroponic farm that will be launching in the Century City building.
