May 15-19 was designated nationally as the 2017 Bike To Work Week. Dubuque area riders participated despite a wet week. Festivities culminated at Town Clock Plaza’s Dubuque Fest.
Prior to the week, Free Flight sponsored a Bike to Work Week (BTWW) promotion with WJOD radio host Ken Peiffer. Brian Walsh, owner of Free Flight, donated an electric bike as part of BTWW. City busses sported banners. Jeremy Burkhart with the Bike Coop, Dave Hartig and Parrish Marugg with Bicycle World, and Raki and Adonia Giannakouros all contributed time and energy as well.
