May 7 a day for biking in Bay Village
The second annual History Mystery Bike Ride sponsored by Village Bicycle Cooperative will be on Saturday, May 7, from 12-2 p.m. at the Cooperative, located on the ground floor of the Bay Village Community House, 303 Cahoon Road. The fundraiser is an easy-paced, family-friendly bike tour that includes a map of stops designed to educate riders about Bay’s rich history and a few of its mysteries. Cost is $10/adult and $3/child, or bring the whole family for $25. Raffle tickets for a bike and other items are available for $1 each. There will also be live music, geocaching, a photo scavenger hunt and light refreshments. Volunteers will be on hand to assist and answer questions. Children 14 and under need the company of an adult. Helmets are mandatory.
Also join us that day from 1-3 p.m. for an informational drop-in session at the Bay Village Police Department’s community room to learn how you can "Bike More and Drive Less." The president of VBC, Jennifer Smillie, explains that the goal of this new program is to educate people on how to use bikes to do activities within the community. The program offers four free classes: Family Cruising 101, Adventure Biking 101, Errand Running 101, and Commuting 101. You will also learn how to make your bike more efficient with suggestions for available products to help you. This is a wonderful activity to continue improving Bay Village’s sustainability and green efforts.
We look forward to seeing you on May 7 at Village Bicycle Cooperative for a day filled with fun, exercise, and information! Visit us online at villagebicycle.org for more information.
