Twenty-four year old Kenzie Brister loves riding her bike but knows just how dangerous it can be, especially in Wichita.
"There are not very many bike lanes and only a few paths, none that go east and west," Brister said.
That's why she's excited about the cities plan for a Better Block event.
It’s fad that's popping up all over the country that involves one block that is completely transformed into a trendy destination; one that's specifically bike and pedestrian friendly.
“We like to focus on a single block and put all our energy into how can we change this and make this into a vibrant and exciting destination,” said Team Better Block’s Jason Roberts.
The transformation will happen at Douglass and Hydraulic. While it will only be temporary, local bikers hope Wichita officials will consider making them permanent.
The Better Block event will be April 27 and 28 but there will be a series of community meetings before then to get people involved in the project.
The first meeting will be March 8 at six o'clock in the evening.
