Bikes, bites and bluegrass will be order of the day at Asbury community event

Asbury United Methodist Church in Prairie Village is playing host to a b-centric Saturday of events.

The church is holding its first-ever “Bicycles, Bites and Bluegrass” gathering, an event open to the entire community, say organizers.

The event will include a series of family bike rides through the neighborhood as well as a longer bike ride that will meander along Tomahawk Road for several miles. Food trucks, including Crave KC, will be on hand dishing out lunch items from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. And bluegrass band the Bluegrass Missourians will be there to provide a soundtrack starting at 11:30 a.m.

The family rides will depart from the church every half hour starting at 10 a.m.

The church will also be offering complimentary helmet and bike safety checks, and will be helping collect used, unwanted bicycles to donate to Revolve KC.

“This is a way for people to come and enjoy outdoor activities in our great community,” said Rev. Jeff Prothro, Associate Pastor at Asbury United Methodist Church. “We’re excited to be in partnership with Revolve KC in helping providing bikes for people. Bring your friends and family to get your bikes checked, enjoy great food, and games and listen to some great bluegrass.”
