Bike the Bend in the Community
More ReCyclers - Earn a Bike kids received their bikes this week at South Bend's Central Fire Station. Bike the Bend, Reducing Obesity Coalition and the City of South Bend worked with the South Bend Fire Department and Firefighters Union 362 to collect used bikes, train the firefighters who volunteered their time to work with the kids.

We are here at Seitz Park this morning standing near the newly re-decked East Race Headgates Bridge. This bridge highlights one of many improvements in our community, made possible by our sponsors, our riders and Bike the Bend, Inc. In the past six years of rides averaging 2,000 participants annually and record volunteer participation in 2015, over $58,000 has been gifted back to our community through the generosity of our sponsors, riders and Bike the Bend, Inc., all dedicated to bringing the vision of Louise E. Addicott – Bike the Bend - to the community. This gift, like so many others, focuses on making our community more beautiful and safer for pedestrians and bicyclists. Details on other community investments can be found in your folder.Tweets by @bikethebend
2015 Ride Update
Our sixth annual Bike the Bend is this Sunday and we need to make you aware of an important distinction with the June 14 ride. For the first time, bicycle riders will not have the priority when the vehicle-restricted route intersects with traffic crossings in parts of South Bend.
