RideLawrence bike rack debuts at Health Care Access
Check out this cool new bike rack at Health Care Access Clinic, 330 Main Street!
Nikki King, executive director of the clinic, which provides health services for people in our community who don't have health insurance, cut the ribbon in an impromptu ceremony during the clinic's Health, Wellness and BBQ Bash this afternoon. (Note: the ribbon is duct tape.)
Marilyn Hull, program coordinator at the Douglas County Community Foundation and fearless leader ofLiveWell Lawrence, which provided funding to the Central Lawrence Rotary for its biking initiative, said it was fitting that a bike rack be located at Health Care Access, since it sends a good message about healthy living. In addition to the bike rack, part of the biking initiative is a website, RideLawrence.com, whose goal is to be a clearinghouse for bike info in Lawrence and Douglas County.
The guy with the hat on in this photo is Larry Rankin, who planted this bike rack and made sure it's solid enough to be used by generations of Lawrencians. He's surrounded by members of the Central Lawrence Rotary (l to right): Jane Hueseman, Lynn O'Neal, Scott Wagner and Steve Lane. This is the third RideLawrence bike rack in town: No. 1 is at the Rotary Arboretum; No. 2 is at the Farmer's Market. Lane is organizing the Lawrence Community Bike Ride, a family ride scheduled for Saturday, July 16 at the Rotary Arboretum.
