About 200 bicyclists are expected to travel Dubuque Street as they participate in the annual New Pioneer Co-op to Co-op Ride as part of Bike Month and national Bike to Work Week on Wednesday, May 16, 2018.
Traffic on Dubuque Street will slow during the ride. Drivers are advised to take a different route if possible to ensure the safety of the cyclists. Bicyclists should also be mindful of road work as they travel along North Dubuque Street that evening, as it is currently under construction as part of the Iowa City Gateway Project.
The ride will leave College Green Park at 5:45 p.m. and is expected to reach Dubuque Street before 6 p.m. Participants will ride north on Dubuque Street, between Church Street and Foster Road, before turning left on Foster and into the Peninsula neighborhood, then over to the Coralville New Pi location.
Iowa City Police officers will help guide traffic the evening of the ride.
