Poetry + Bikes = Word Up Bike Tour!

Join us for the Word Up Bike Tour this Saturday, June 24, 2006. Bring your bike to the meeting point (Crown Candy Kitchen at St. Louis Avenue & N. 14th St.) by 10 a.m. We’ll ride an easy 5-10 miles through ONSL and nearby neighborhoods, stopping to enjoy the Word Up poetry banners along the way.

Word Up is an art and poetry project utilizing the public outdoor display of poetry to encourage the exploration of the Old North St. Louis neighborhood via bicycling and walking. Created and coordinated by Maddie Earnest, Amanda Doyle, and Ann Haubrich, the project uses banners designed by students from the Wayfinding/Envirnonmental Design class at Webster University, taught byJoe Floresca.

Saturday’s event is a project of and Old North St. Louis Restoration Group. All are welcome! For more information, call 353-6761.
