“Let’s Take a Ride/Walk” Offers Free Lunch to Kent State Faculty, Staff and Students
Kent State University faculty, staff members and students are invited to walk or ride a bicycle along the Kent State University Esplanade to the downtown Kent restaurant, Laziza, during the second annual “Let’s Take a Ride/Walk” event on Thursday, Sept. 20, from 11:30 a.m. Free lunch will be served by Laziza to all participants, and valuable coupons for Main Street merchants will be available.
The event offers the opportunity for participants to hear about new shops coming to Acorn Alley II in downtown Kent, and learn biking tips from the Portage Cyclery experts.
Registration tables for the event will be located by the information desk in the Kent Student Center, which also is the takeoff point for the walk and bike ride. Participants can choose to ride their own bikes or get a free rental from FlashFleet at the Kent Student Center.
Students earn 500 FLASHperk reward points by participating in this event.
Organizers of the event say the support of the Kent State community is key to the success of local downtown businesses. Downtown Kent merchants hope to complete the overall Kent State community and college town experience.
“Let’s Take a Ride/Walk” is sponsored by Kent State’s Taskforce on Sustainability, Laziza, Miracle on Main Street (M.O.M.S), Main Street Kent, OneKent, Portage Cyclery and TransPORTAGE.
