bikes broadway 300PADUCAH, Ky. (9/6/13) – Bikes on Broadway returns this Sunday, September 8 with a new twist, “Riding for Readers”. Before you load your bicycle for the event, take a look around your home for gently used children’s books that you can donate before you enjoy the afternoon of bike-riding. The Parks Services Department is partnering with REACH (Reading Expands a Child’s Horizons) to collect books this Sunday, 1-4 p.m. REACH will distribute the books to local families. The book donation site will be at 17th and Broadway.
 
Bikes on Broadway allows families a safe stretch of roadway for strolling or riding. Vehicular traffic will not be permitted on Broadway between 4th and 17th Streets allowing for a safe environment for people-powered vehicles. This is a free event.
 
Paducah Parks Services thanks the following sponsors: West Kentucky Chapter of the Association for Early Childhood Education, BikeWorld, Paducah Head Start, McCracken County Cooperative Extension, United Way-Reading Pals, McCracken County Public Library, West Kentucky Community & Technical College, and Paducah Bank. Be sure to visit the sponsor tents at 17th and Broadway for information and refreshments.
 
BikeWorld will be set up at 17th and Broadway to provide bicycle mechanical help and other assistance. Volunteers will help direct traffic at the intersections of 9th Street and Broadway and 13th Street and Broadway. Please avoid driving around the barricades.

The final 2013 date for Bikes on Broadway is October 13. This is the sixth year for the event.
