Bike To School action all over Northeast Ohio!

The Century Cycles Bike To School Challenge is in the middle of its second week at Bay Middle School, Rocky River Middle School, and A.I. Root and Claggett Middle Schools in Medina. The Bay and Rocky River challenges will continue through Friday, May 23, while the Medina Bike To School Challenge concludes tomorrow at Root and Claggett. A one-week challenge kicks off next week at Bay High School and Westerly Elementary in Bay Village.

Several other Northeast Ohio schools have caught the Bike To School fever! Although not officially part of the Century Cycles Bike To School Challenge, Blake Elementary School in Medina has held their own Bike To School program since 2013, running for the same two-week period. Petch and Chris from the Century Cycles store in Medina stopped by to lend their support, including a demonstration of riding the signature Century Cycles high-wheeler bike!

In conjunction with National Bike To Work Day on Friday, May 16, the St. Ignatius High School Cycling Club is sponsoring a Bike To School Day. Group rides will be led by faculty or students from various points around the city.

Last week, on National Bike To School Day (May 7), the Cleveland Heights Bicycle Coalition and the Cleveland Heights Police Department delivered 75 bicycle helmets for distribution to students at Roxbury Elementary School.

And finally, students at Gilles-Sweet Elementary in Fairview Park have been planning a bicycle parade, which has been re-scheduled twice due to bad weather. But they went ahead with their bike safety assembly on May 7, where 6 bicycles were raffled off to students. Read more from the Sun News.
