CO+HOOTS to Host Pedal the Parks with Grid Bike Share in Phoenix
A bicycle built for two is fine and all, but a bicycle built for the whole community? That could really shake things up. Which is exactly what Grid Bike Share plans to do by bringing a proposed 1,000 bikes to Tempe, Phoenix, and Mesa.
Until that bike share program gets rolling however (estimated launch date is early 2014) Grid and CO+HOOTS are gearing up with a free outdoor event, Pedal the Parks.
Pedal the Parks will kick off Saturday, April 12, at CO+HOOTS with an 11 a.m. demo by the Grid Bike Share program. There visitors can grab a bite from The Roasted Shallot food truck before hopping on their own bikes for a leisurely ride through downtown parks including the pop-up park at Matt's Big Breakfast, Eastlake Park, Vernon Avenue's pocket park by Shine Coffee, Margaret T. Hance Park, Downtown Civic Space Park, Encanto Park, and Steele Indian School Park.
