Residents join Salt Lake City mayor on spring spin


(Francisco Kjolseth | The Salt Lake Tribune) Salt Lake City Mayor Jackie Biskupski gets ready to take a fun ride alongside Salt Lake Police Chief Mike Brown for Bike to Work Day on Tuesday, May 23, 2017, to highlight the City’s newly constructed 900 South Bike Park at 905 South, 700 West. The ride was meant to promote fitness, clean air, community building, bike safety and celebration of the new bike park as they rode to the City County Building.

Salt Lake City Mayor Jackie Biskupski on Tuesday invited constituents to peddle their ideas for the city’s future — so long as they peddled fast enough to keep up.

It was Bike to Work Day, and the mayor led city residents, City Hall employees and area businesses in a ride from the city’s newly enhanced 905 S. 700 West bike park to Washington Square.

"Mayor’s Bike to Work Day is a great opportunity to get out and enjoy a beautiful spring morning on two wheels," Biskupski said in a news release.

Before setting off, riders were scheduled to watch BMX and mountain bikers in a demonstration at the bike park.
