The Platteville Public Library will be one of more than 65 libraries statewide participating in Bike to the Library the week of June 20.
Library patrons who bike to their local participating library will be eligible to enter a drawing for prizes from donors Saris Cycling Group, Planet Bike, Bicycle Benefits and the Field Roast Grain Meat Co. In addition, 60 bicycle helmets will be given away at various locations. Wisconsin Bike Federation Ambassadors will conduct safety presentations and workshops on safe biking.
Other area participating libraries include the Cobb Library, the Schreiner Memorial Library in Lancaster, the Mineral Point Public Library and the Prairie du Chien Public Library.
Bike to the Library supports the health benefits of public and individual actions that reduce emissions, including those that encourage biking.
Bike to the Library is also sponsored by the Bike to the Library organization, the UW–Madison Global Health Institute, and the Wisconsin Bike Federation.
