The Department of Environmental Resilience, in partnership with AmeriCorps, is organizing the bike ride as a way to promote biking among women and to highlight women local to Goshen who did great things for the community.

The ride, open to the public, will be May 21 at 2 p.m. Participants are asked to gather next to Goshen Brewing Company. Michiana Area Council of Governments will be onsite starting at 1 p.m. to make bicycle safety checks and minor tune-ups.

The 2.5 mile ride will start and end at Goshen Brewing Company and there will be three stops throughout, where a living history performance will guide riders through the historical significance of each location. High School students Jamie Lake, Mara Miller and Anusha Jha will perform at the historical figures.
