The city of Mission recently announced a first: a community bike ride to promote health and wellness in the area.
Mission will hold a Wellness Bike Ride at Leo Peña Placita Park this Thursday night at 6:30 p.m. The ride will start at the park and go from Conway Ave. to 1st St., and then from TX-495 and back to the park. Families are encouraged to participate by biking, walking or running through the path.
According to the city website, this is “one of many wellness rides Mayor Armando O’caña plans to host – because healthy communities make happy communities.” The event was announced at this week’s city council meeting.
“It’s pretty much an equivalent of a 5K Run,” O’caña said. “Afterwards, we’re going to get together at the park. It’s just a family day, for families to come out to downtown Mission.”
