If you've ever wanted to ride your bike right down the middle of Ward Parkway (and live to tell the tale) here's your chance. Kansas City's Cycle In The City is coming up May 16 from 2-5pm and everyone's invited. For the full scoop, check out www.cycleinkc.com.
During Cycle In The City, Ward Parkway will be closed to motorized traffic and opened to anything on feet or wheels. And it's not just a bike-a-thon. The grass medians will be filled with attractions and activities for all ages from live music to yoga.
While it may be a novelty around here, open streets festivals like this one have been growing in popularity around the world. You can check out a brief history here: https://vimeo.com/78886448.
