Bay Village Bicycle Safety Fair is tonight at 6:30 pm

Trust Scott and the crew from the Rocky River store to get an entire town ready to ride! They'll be at the Bay Village Bicycle Safety Fair tonight from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm at Bay Middle School, doing free bicycle safety checks for city residents. Special attention is being paid to the students from Bay Middle School and Bay High School, who are registering this week for the Bay Bike To School Challenge sponsored by Century Cycles and Chipotle on May 4 - 22.

What fun is there at the fair? Well, Century Cycles is giving away bicycle helmets to the first 40 people who receive a safety check. Krista from the Rocky River store will be there, fitting helmets and showing Bay residents the bicycle she uses for commuting, which was featured in The Plain Dealer last year. Also:
  • Bike To School Challenge organizers will register students and answer parents' questions about the program.
  • Project Earth Environmental Club will educate attendees on the environmental benefits of riding a bike, while the Bay Skate and Bike Park Foundation will educate them on the physical benefits. Both groups are Bike To School Challenge sponsors and will sell t-shirts.
  • The city of Bay Village's police department and their bike officers will be available to citizens with bike licenses and information.
