June Village Viewpoint

This summer already feels glorious and it’s just the beginning.  I have been making lists upon lists of everything I want to do this summer, and now it is time to get going. The best part is, in Beverly/Morgan Park, we only need two wheels for transportation!  We can ride our bikes to porch concerts, shopping, and our favorite restaurants and breweries. We can bike to grab some ice cream, and ride throughout our beautiful neighborhood as we solve the puzzle in this summer’s History Mystery Bike Adventure.  

Local streets are being paved and new bike lanes are being added, so we can safely share the road. There’s never been a better time to use your bicycle! 

Don’t forget to take pictures while you are out and about on your bike, and tag BAPA with the hashtag #bikebeverly.  

It only seems fitting that our favorite bike shop is celebrating their 100th birthday this summer.  Congratulations and Happy 100th Birthday to Beverly Bike and Ski.  We are incredibly lucky to have this business in the neighborhood. Cheers to 100 years serving our community.   

Now let’s get this summer rolling!
