The ribbon-cutting is scheduled at 11 a.m. with a community bike ride to follow. Lake Dallas police are offering a bike safety training class at 10:15 a.m. and the city is offering a chance to win free bicycle helmets. Velo Republic Bicycle Company is offering free bike safety checks and minor repairs.
