Imagine a time where you can freely ride your bike around West Hartford Center without the worry of cars. This was the vision of Ethan Frankel of Bike West Hartford when he created Center Streets West Hartford and it allows the community to do just that for four hours.
On Sunday, Aug. 25, break out your bike, bring the kids and ride around West Hartford Center to enjoy an open-street ride while bringing awareness to bike safety. Learn more about the event and how Ethan brought his vision to reality as one of the town’s signature events.
