Thumbs up: Bike to the fair
Think of it as the most fun multitasking to be had in the city: Travel to the state fair by bike AND offset all those shameless calories in the lemon shake-ups, tenderloins and deep-fried cornucopia that you are sure to consume. The Central Indiana Bicycling Association will make it easy by offering a "Pedal & Park" at the old "Boulevard Station" at 38th Street and the Monon Trail. It's free and secure, plus the CIBA volunteers, who have operated the stand for 15 years, will give $1 fair discount coupons to all who pedal in. The stand's hours are set from 9 a.m. – 8 p.m. CIBA estimates it parked almost 1,700 bikes last year. This year, it has signed up more than 200 volunteers to help with the effort.
