Mayor Tyler proclaims May as Bicycle Month in Shreveport; Caddo Commission also working towards making the parish bikeable

Bicycle Month in Shreveport

May is National Bicycling Month; it is propitious of Mayor Tyler to give recognition to bicyclists' place on the streets of Shreveport. The Caddo Commission is helping, too, says Matthew Linn.

"Caddo Parish is introducing the same jointly written Bicycling Month resolution Monday, May 4, and final adoption will be Thursday," says Linn. "Bicycle advocates are encouraged to attend and speak on behalf of this resolution either at our Monday or Thursday meeting. 3:30pm is the time and 515 Travis is the location."

Said Jacob Sanchez after the recent Texas Ave Maker's Fair, "So this past weekend, down town, there was this comunity parade and event. A part of that was this awesome operation called The Bike Container Shreveport biking co-op. They took in donated bikes and parts to make safe and fun bikes for children and people in need. As well as fixing up bikes for others that needed repairs. Greatest comunity of people I've been around. Since i no longer had a bike of my own anymore, for helping out and volunteering at the event. I was given a donated bike! After some elbow greese and the help of everyone there, she is back on the road! Thanks guys!"
