SALT LAKE CITY (July 21, 2010) – On Wednesday, July 28, the Salt Lake Bees will host a ‘Bike to the Bees’ event at Spring Mobile Ballpark (1300 S and Main Street) in association with Bees Green Week, which runs July 27-30.
The event encourages local residents to ride their bikes to the Bees game on July 28 and park in a free, secure bike valet parking area provided by the Bees. The secure bike valet will be located in the fenced-in parking lot directly west of the ballpark on West Temple.
Participants will receive a buy-one, get-one free Bees ticket voucher, while the first person who arrives at the game and has his/her bike valet parked, will have the opportunity to throw out the ceremonial first pitch. Select participants will also be included in an in-game tricycle race. Game time on July 28 is 7:05 p.m. and gates open at 6:05 p.m.
In addition to biking to the ballpark, individuals who donate a bicycle to the Salt Lake City Bicycle Collective, located at 2312 South West Temple, http://www.slcbikecollective.org/ , at any point leading up to the July 28 game will receive a free ticket voucher for that game. The Bicycle Collective provides refurbished bicycles and educational programs to the community, focusing on children and lower income households.
