Mark your calendars for June 16th for the 37th Annual Wheeler Metric! This is the Wheelers’ signature fundraising event for community bicycling-related programs.  Note that our Metric is being held on the 3rd Saturday of the month instead of the 2nd….

This year, proceeds from the Metric will benefit the newly formed Bike Co-op located in Bloomington [map it].  The Bike Co-op is one of the many programs offered by the West Bloomington Revitalization Project (WBRP).  This Pantagraph Article is a great primer on the Bike Co-op and its Earn a Bike Program.  To learn more about WBRP, visit the WBRP’s website!

To keep tabs on registration and other updates for the Metric, be sure to check back on the Spring Metric page.

See you there!
