Bike to the IMA and Home Tour This weekend

Pedal and Park will be in two places at once
this weekend; offering area cyclists free parking at 100 Acres: The
Virginia B. Fairbanks Art and Nature Park, at its free public grand
opening this Sunday and also at the Meridian-Kessler Home and Garden
Tour on Saturday and Sunday.

Set in quiet woodlands, bounded by White River and the Central Canal on
the lower grounds of the Indianapolis Museum of Art, 100 Acres features
site-specific works of art nestled in meadows and deep woods, and even
on and in the 35-acre lake. Volunteers will monitor the free bike
parking corral next to the Central Canal Towpath Trail at the red
pony-truss bridge. You can ride to this free event along one of Indy's
most captivating greenways, a 19th-Century waterway filled with history
that passes through neighborhoods and college campuses, sometimes
skirting the White River. The corral will be open Sunday from noon to 5

Don't miss the largest and longest running tour of vintage homes in
Indiana, the Meridian-Kessler Home & Garden Tour! Located just 15
minutes from downtown Indianapolis, Meridian-Kessler is one of the
city's oldest neighborhoods, with historic charm nestled among hundreds
of well-maintained and recently restored homes. This event takes place
on Saturday and Sunday, June 19 and 20, from noon to 5 p.m. look for
Pedal and Park bike racks at selected tour homes central to other tour
homes. Bike racks will not be staffed, but available for use as cyclists
travel through the neighborhood. Racks will be located at 5909 N.
Washington Blvd., 5805 Forest Lane, 5145 New Jersey and 4133 N. Central.
Enjoy the Tour.
