We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you. DONATE

Bike To Work Day

Ability Center Fundrasier and Poetry Slam



Bike To Work Day
No, it's not graffiti in those Salt Lake bike lanes. Pay attention and be safe on those two-wheeled vehicles. In celebration of May as Bike Month, the city has been painting chalk messages in city bike lanes to remind cyclists about riding safely and sharing the road. Things such as, "Use lights at night" and "Wait here for green," and "Ride with traffic." They'll be wearing off by the grand finale—the annual Mayors' Bike to Work Day. Salt Lake City Mayor Jackie Biskupski, Salt Lake County Mayor Ben McAdams, and other mayors from the Salt Lake Valley will lead bicyclists. Sugar House Draw, (bike/pedestrian tunnel under 1300 East and 2150 South), 385-228-2365, Tuesday, May 31, 7:15 a.m. (breakfast, music), ride will begin at 8 a.m.,
