Weaver Mayor and Residents Participate in Afternoon Bike Ride
One local mayor decided to take matters into his own hands by motivating residents to get active. Weaver Mayor Wayne Willis used his social media platform to encourage residents to join him during a Sunday afternoon bike ride. The friendly ride started at Weaver Park as riders were encouraged to ride at their own pace to the Alexandria-Jacksonville Highway and back.
During the 12 mile ride, residents were able to socialize with one another while also getting active. Mayor Willis says more than 20 people participated in the city’s first bike ride with one person traveling from Birmingham. Beginner riders to experienced bikers were all welcomed.
Mayor Willis says he looks forward to the next afternoon bike ride with residents as he continues to motivate the community to get active.
