Bike the Blocks

The River District Association and I Bike Rockford are partnering to present the first-ever Bike the Blocks, a fun spin on the popular Shop the Blocks events that occur frequently in downtown Rockford. The event will be held this Saturday, July 14, from noon to 5pm on State Street between 3rd and Wyman. 

To make the event a rollicking success, WE NEED YOUR HELP! We need volunteers to assist with traffic control, providing info/directions to participants and visitors, manning the I Bike Rockford booth, and helping run a mini-cyclocross event or a kids bicycle safety rodeo. Shifts are just 2-hours long so use this form to sign up now to volunteer for this awesome event!

Be sure to share the event with people you know who love to ride bikes or anyone who just enjoys being downtown, shopping, and eating, and strolling (so, that's everyone -- share the word widely!).

This is an opportunity for I Bike Rockford to step up and help promote a better culture for people who ride bikes in our community, and to get significant buy-in from the business owners in downtown. Please consider volunteering for a shift (or 2) and help make a great event even more amazing!
