Six students win grand prize bicycles from Century Cycles and Raleigh

Six lucky West Shore students who took the Bike to School Challenge received more benefits than a fun ride to school, healthier bodies, cleaner air and the wind through their bike helmets. Their names were randomly drawn to win Bike to School Challenge’s grand prizes -- Raleigh Talus 2.0 bicycles donated by Century Cycles and Raleigh Bicycles.

At Bay High School, the bicycles were won by 12th grader Matt Brant and 9th grader Elizabeth Veres, presented to them by Scott Cowan, owner of Century Cycles (at left), and Chris Speyer, Vice President of Marketing and Product Development at Raleigh Bicycles (in black shirt).

At Bay Middle School, 5th grader Cara Berlan (above, far left) and 6th grader Owen MacMillan at Bay Middle School (both of whom biked every day of BTS Challenge) were given their Raleighs by Scott Cowan, BTS organizer and BMS teacher Lawrence Kuh, and Chris Speyer.

At Rocky River Middle School, Mayor Pamela Bobst (far left) helped Scott Cowan and Chris Speyer present 8th grader Sam Stankivicz and 6th grader Brandon Lewis with their brand-new Raleigh bicycles. They are joined by RRMS physical education teacher and BTS organizer Wendy Crites.

Congratulations, all -- may these bikes provide you with miles and miles of bicycling fun and help you take next year's Bike to School Challenge!
