To the Editor:

Westerville residents love their Fourth Friday events, and here's an easy way to enjoy them even more: Ride your bikes and park them at the Westerville Bike Club bike corral! Club members will keep your bicycles under careful watch and have them ready for you when it's time to head home after an evening of enjoying the sights, sounds and foods of Fourth Friday. The Westerville Bike Shop will be on hand to inspect bikes and even make minor fixes on the spot.

Westerville has developed an exemplary network of multi-use trails as well as accessible streets and roadways that make getting around town by bicycle easy and enjoyable. Most residents within the city limits live less than three miles from Uptown, so riding there takes only minutes while getting some healthy exercise. Best of all you don't have to search for parking! Just drop off your bikes at the corral, at the southwest corner of State and Main behind Heavenly Cup, Uptown Pharmacy and Emerald Bank and enjoy Fourth Friday.

As a member of the WBC and the Delaware County Friends of the Trail, I encourage everyone to ride more often whether for commutes, errands or exercise.
