MASON CITY – Mason City Mayor Eric Bookmeyer wants you to go on a bike ride with him next month.

And for $5.00, you will be able to go.

On August 22nd, 2013 at 6:30 PM Mayor Bookmeyer will be riding his bike from Newman School to Lester Milligan Park.

The cost to join the “Mayor’s Ride” is $5 for adults 18 and over or $10 per family . Youth 5-17 are free and registration is required. Each participant will receive a t-shirt and water bottle.

A billboard is now at the corner of 6th Street SW and President Avenue, advertising a bike ride with the mayor on the evening of August 22nd with more information available at youthtaskforce.org.  However, a check of that website showed no further information about the “Mayor’s Ride” and nothing about Mason City at all. The site is dedicated to the Holyoke, Massachusetts Youth Task Force.  The Mason City Finance Department said late last week that the city did not pay for the billboard, but indicated that the city gives the Mason City Youth Task Force $25,000 to $30,000 each year.

The event is also listed on the city’s web site on the home page and under the Youth Task Force’s page.

On the city’s web site, it says citizens can contact the Recreation Department at 421-3673 for more information.
