PedNet Coalition will honor former Columbia Mayor Darwin Hindman by hosting a community bike ride to his memorial service Saturday, according to a news release.

Hindman, who died Monday, was well-known for trying to make it safer and easier to get around Columbia on a bike.

The mile-long ride will begin at 11:45 a.m. Saturday at the Darwin and Axie Hindman Discovery Garden in Stephens Lake Park, 2300 E. Walnut St. The group will then ride to the memorial service at Calvary Episcopal Church, 123 S. Ninth St., which will begin at 1 p.m.

PedNet asks that as many people as possible bike to the start of the route at Stephens Lake Park, and those who drive should park in the lot off Old 63.
