This year's free festivities get rolling on Tuesday, June 25, with breakfast in the hospital's courtyard starting at 6:30 a.m.

On Wednesday -- Bike to Work Day -- Blue will host breakfast from 6:30 to 8:30 a.m. at their branch on the corner of 7th Avenue and Central Avenue.

The final event -- Bikes, Brats & Beers -- takes place on Thursday from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Freedom's Edge, and will feature live entertainment from the Country Club Band.

Cyclists will get a free ticket good for raffle prizes, and Blue and city staff will be serving up a beer and bratwurst dinner.

Blue spokeswoman Michele Bolkovatz says a record number of people are expected to participate in the events, and she reminds cyclists to ride safely and obey all traffic laws.
