The biking community that brought over 250 riders together to cover 1,435 miles last fall is returning to The Edge District this Spring!

Freewheel is a series of free, casual, slow-paced bicycle rides with a focus on community and neighborhoods. Freewheel is for everyone; all ages, all skill levels and every type of bike is welcome!

The prime meeting spot for Slow Rides will be at the Freewheel HQ located at 603 Monroe Avenue. Every Wednesday, you can take part in Slow Rides that will depart at 6 pm and explore neighborhoods for around 45 minutes. You can bring your own bike or reserve a bike from the fleet stored at the HQ. Make sure you reserve your bike quickly because they go fast!

After each Slow Ride, High Cotton Brewing Co. normally has drink specials for riders, so make sure to follow them on social media!
