ASHEVILLE, NC – Asheville on Bikes (AoB), an advocacy group focused on advancing Asheville’s urban bicycle culture, is hosting its Second Annual Bike Love event to be held at the Wedge Gallery on Saturday, February 23. The event will feature local bands and local beer and will highlight Asheville on Bikes’ community initiatives, including its support for the Bicycle Network Map project. Bike Love is co-sponsored by Arts2People and the French Broad Brewery.
Performing at this year’s event is Count Clovis (featuring Toubab Krewe’s Justin Perkins and Drew Heller), Pierce Edens and the Dirty Work, and Red Dirt Floor (featuring Marty Gallagher of ProBikes). Doors open at 8:00pm. Admission is $12.
This year, Bike Love falls just before Asheville City Council considers the proposed Bicycle Network Map, the long-range plan for Asheville’s bicycle network created by the the City’s Transportation and Engineering Department with the support of members of Asheville’s bicycling community, on February 26. Asheville on Bikes intends to use the celebration to increase awareness about the advantages of improving and expanding Asheville’s bicycle transportation infrastructure and garner support for the Bicycle Network Map project.
