Pedaling for Pianos

Pedaling for Pianos 

A fundraiser is being planned for Saturday August 13th 9:00 a.m. to noon to raise money to purchase keyboards for MusicLink students. Bikers will be riding a route from the St. Paul Cathedral to 2 stops on Grand Ave., a stop at Shadow Falls Park and back to the Cathedral. Mini-concerts will take place at each stop. We're looking for bikers and performers who would like to join in the fun. No fundraising by performers is involved and performers can bike the route for free!
