The roads are not ready for warm weather biking just yet, but early registration is underway for the 4th Annual Bike the Bend. The non-competitive recreational ride takes place on Sunday, May 19.
Bikers travel through South Bend, Mishawaka and St. Joseph County on streets that are blocked off from cars. Last year, almost 2,000 bikers of all ages road some portion of the 35 mile round trip loop.
Until midnight on April 1, registration is $27 for adults with up to three kids ages 17 and under. Registration prices go up to $32 on April 2.
