A local bike riding event is taking advantage of the warmer weather, and the bike friendly city that is Grand Rapids.

Bike riders are encouraged to join the Tour De Quarter on May 20 in Grand Rapids. The ride begins at City High School at 11 a.m. and goes until 3 p.m. as the riders bike through the North Quarter of Grand Rapids.

Event organizers hope to promotes rider safety, give local businesses some exposure, and give a demonstration of the ride-ability of the three business districts of Grand Rapids' North Quarter.
