BMS students take on biking challenge
The 11th annual Bike to School Challenge in Bay Village was an enormous success. On average, 447 students and staff rode their bikes to school every day – that’s 57 percent of the school enrollment! The “high ride day” saw 68 percent of the school riding their bikes.
Total miles biked were 18,604 or the equivalent of riding across Ohio 85 times. The students and staff saved 16,575 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions and saved $2,369 of gas money. Bay Middle School has one of the highest participation rates in the country!
Community sponsors provided incentives and rewards for all riders. Mr. Lawrence Kuh, math teacher at Bay Middle School, is the coordinator of this amazing program. His passion for the Bike to School challenge is contagious and his dedication to the students is unwavering.
Ride on, Bay Middle School!
