The weather is about to change to wonderful Fall, a good time to ride a bike.

Fridays will be Bike Days this fall in the Downtown Texarkana Arts and Historic District.

To show support for local cyclists and active modes of transportation, the District is encouraging residents to use bicycles or other similar forms of transportation as their primary means of exploring the downtown area on Fridays this fall.

To support this effort, free guided bike tours of the District will be offered every Friday in October (Oct. 5, 12, 19, 26) and a special costumed Halloween ride will be offered Wednesday, Oct. 31st. Tours will begin and end at the Museum of Regional History and take place from 5:15 – 6:30 PM. Participants will be able to  rent a bike from Texarkana’s UPcycle Bike Rental Program, or bring their own.

While reservations are not required, bike rentals are limited and will be handled on a first come, first served basis.
