Patrons renting a bike from downtown bike rental shop, Ride OKC, during Spring Break receive a free admission ticket to their choice of Adventure District attractions.
This spring break, Oklahoma City’s Adventure District is celebrating the newly expanded Katy Trail bike path by rewarding select cyclists with a free ticket to some of its premiere attractions, including Science Museum Oklahoma, Cinemark Tinseltown and XD and the Oklahoma City Zoo.
The Adventure District has partnered with OKC based bicycle rental shop Ride OKC for this one-week promotion to generate awareness for the newly expanded Katy Trail bike path which now connects downtown OKC with the Adventure District, home to many of the state’s most popular and family-friendly attractions including the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum, Science Museum Oklahoma, Cinemark Tinseltown and XD, and the OKC Zoo.
The 7.3 mile Katy Trail features newly paved pathways running from downtown’s Washington Park (400 N High Avenue) north towards NE Grand Boulevard to NE 50 Street and through Oklahoma City’s Adventure District passing the entrances to the OKC Zoo and Science Museum Oklahoma. Almost the entire path is dedicated trail space with some on-street bike lanes between NE 36 and NE 50.
“The Katy Trail’s expansion into Oklahoma City’s Adventure District is another example of the fantastic momentum the District is experiencing,” said OKC Adventure District’s Executive Director, Brittani Hunter. “This wide and winding bike path beautifully links the Adventure District’s dynamic attractions with the energy of downtown OKC.”
Since 2018, Ride OKC has been championing bike paths and bicycle riding in Oklahoma City while also renting bicycles and leading guided tours at their downtown location. “Bicycle riding is a fantastic way to experience the city and all it has to offer,” said Ryan Fogle, owner of Ride OKC. “With the expansion of the Katy Trail now going through the Adventure District, we are excited for more Oklahomans to combine the thrill of cycling with the excitement of visiting the Adventure District’s attractions.”
Oklahoma City’s growing network of bike trails will provide additional connections to the Katy Trail and Adventure District. Two such trails currently under construction include Deep Fork Greenway Trail and the Greenway on the Oklahoma River Trail.
Individuals renting a bike through Ride OKC between Saturday, March 11 and Sunday, March 19 will each get their choice of one free general admission ticket to either Science Museum Oklahoma, Cinemark Tinseltown and XD or the Oklahoma City Zoo. Tickets are limited and available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
