Weekend News Roundup

For any NE Ohio cyclists who want to get in on the inner workings of Ohio's only state-wide bicycle advocacy organization, the Ohio Bicycle Federation is holding its next Board Meeting at the Twinsburg Fitness Center on Saturday, June 4 at 9am-12pm. The meeting is open to the public, and is being held in conjunction with the Twinsburg Duathlon and Health Expo.

Check out the crazy bike racing action on the Red Bull Mini-Drome in London (UK), the world's smallest velodrome:

Congratulations to the Adventure Cycling Association for meeting their May goal of raising over $30,000 to help develop the United States Bicycle Route System (USBRS)! As a Member Bike Shop of Adventure Cycling, we helped spread the word about the campaign in a blog post last month.

The ACA's successfully campaign comes on the heels, also last month, of the announcement from the American Association of Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) of their approval of six new official US Bicycle Routes.

Here's a final reminder that you have until midnight tonight (Friday) to save $5 on registration for our FIRST EVER Night Ride on the Towpath Trail in Cuyahoga County. This ride benefits the Ronald McDonald House of Cleveland, and is $20 if you get in online by tonight, or $25 if you register tomorrow night (Saturday) at the event. See for full details and to register.

Finally, more on the video front; not exactly news, but cool anyway. Watch Peter Gabriel ride a bike around the stage during this performance of "Solsbury Hill" from five years ago (thanks to our friend Chuck Koenig for the link).
