Hammond/Whiting WHAM Ride 2012
Tis the season for night rides in the Region.. a quartet of bike rides after dark are happening across Lake, Porter, LaPorte, and Cook Counties, over the next few weeks.  NIRPC Transportation Planning Manager Mitch Barloga says a night ride lets you hit the streets without the normal daytime traffic, and a with a big group of people.  He says they also put a spotlight on the growing network of bike trails in the Region, especially in Hammond.
The first of the four is the LaPorte Parks and Recreation Night Ride this Friday July 19th. Then, the very first LOOP Ride, Lansing Overnight on Pedals, July 27th. On August 3rd, it's the Whiting-Hammond After Midnight... or WHAM... Ride, and August 24th Valparaiso's Night Ride.
