UPDATE: Due to many schedule conflicts, we are planning on changing the date for this event to April 15th
Urban Indy hits its 10-year anniversary on April 11th. As that is a Tuesday, I’ve decided to host the gathering on the Saturday after the official date, April 15th. A few years ago,Â we hosted a construction tour of major downtown projects. This year, I thought it would be interesting to have a bicycle tour of the Near-East Side. It has been greatly overshadowed by places such as Fountain Square and Fall Creek Place, but neighborhoods such asÂ Holy Cross, Englewood, and Cottage Home have been doggedly determined on revitalizing themselves.
I first toured East 10th Street on foot almost 9 years ago. Then I revisited it in 2013. There was quite a bit of progress in that timespan, and there has been even more redevelopment since then. This tour will also hit spots near East Washington Street, and some interesting places between these two arteries.
Here are the particulars for this gathering:
Date: April 15th
Time: 2 pm
Location: Old Ford Plant, 1301 East Washington Street
Final Destination: Centerpoint Brewing, 1125 East Brookside Avenue
BYOB: Bring Your Own Bicycle
Below isÂ the route that I have planned. Deviations or side tracks are slightly possible, but I’m going to try to stick to the route, in case anyone needs to join us late. If you have any suggestions or additions, please let us know in the comments. This might not be a final draft. If there is a final draft, it will posted on here as we get closer to April 8th.
Be sure to mark your calendars for this event, as we celebrate 10 years of blogging.
