MADISON (WKOW) -- Streets on Madison's west side will be taken over this weekend, by bikers and walkers.
"This one is special because it's the first time we've been on the west side, and it's part of our program to give folks an opportunity to see other neighborhoods from the great vantage point of their bicycle," Mayor Soglin said. "It's an opportunity to weave throughout one of Madison's mature neighborhood, a neighborhood that has a tremendous number of bicyclists itself."
The neighborhood Ride the Drive is this Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The route begins at Rennenbohm Park. The route will follow Regent Street to Rosa Road to South Hill Drive to South Segoe Road.
"We're really proud of this route, and we really think it will be a special neighborhood route," Madison Parks Superintendent Kevin Briski said. "This is our second neighborhood Ride the Drive. Our Ride the Drives primarily happen in the downtown core. This is our effort to bring Ride the Drive, and that concept of bringing people together on their bikes, on city streets, without traffic, into the neighborhoods."
Streets on the route will be closed starting at 9 a.m. and will reopen at 3 p.m. Mayor Soglin says police officers will be helping navigate traffic, and said he does not expect and traffic problems in the area.
