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., BikeSLC.com

Ability Center Fundrasier
Our guess is that you may won't compare very well with a lot of people of limited abilities. Be amazed at the National Ability Center's annual Barn Party that celebrates 30 years of adaptive sport programs and 28 years of equestrian programs. The event features a barbecue, music, line dancing, adaptive riding and roping demonstrations, kid activities, mechanical bull, hay rides, cowboy poetry and a silent auction. Proceeds support the more than 28,000 experiences and programs provided by the National Ability Center each year. National Ability Center, Equestrian Center, 1000 Ability Way, Park City, 435-649-3991, Saturday, June 4, 5:30-10 p.m., family packages (two adults, three kids), $100; adults, $45, youth, $20, kids under 8, $10, seniors, $25, DiscoverNAC.org/BarnParty

Poetry Slam
There's a new kind of slam on the Wasatch Front called the Double Dragon Deathmatch. Five teams of two poets each will compete for the cash prize of $97. The Deathmatch features Joy Young, a performance and teaching spoken-word artist described as a queer Phoenician circus poet, and Sienna Burnett, a queer femme actor, musician and touring spoken-word artist based out of Seattle. Weller Book Works, 607 Trolley Square, 801-328-2586, Monday, May 30, 8 p.m., competing teams, $20; spectators, $3-5 donation, WellerBookWorks.com
