Helping two- and four-wheeled traffic co-exist is a major theme of the second annual <a href="http://www.kalamazoobikeweek.com">Kalamazoo Bike Week</a>. It starts Thursday, May 9th, with a “Community Forum on Cycling”. Bike Week Co-Chairman David Warwick says he hopes it attracts motorists as well as bicyclists.
