1. Cleveland is BikeTown!

We are excited to announce that Cleveland has been chosen as a BikeTown by Rodale Inc., the publishers of Bicycling Magazine.

BikeTown is a project started by Rodale in 2003 to give free bikes to 50 individuals in Portland, Maine. The people who received the free bikes were chosen based on the results of an essay contest, where applicants wrote why they felt they deserved one of the bikes. Some of the winners were featured in an issue of Bicycling Magazine in early 2004, as they examined how the bikes affected the lives of the recipients and the community around them.

The origianl Bike Town project was such a success, Rodale decided to continue the program in 2004 in five more communities, and those stories were told in a recent issue of the magazine.

Now, thanks to the work of many local cycling advocates, Cleveland has been chosen as one of the 2005 BikeTown cities!  Stay tuned to the Century Cycles web site for more information to come.

If you would like to apply to receive a bicycle as part of the BikeTown project, start thinking about your most compelling story about how a new bicycle will impact your life (in 50 words or less). Will you ride with your kids? Bike to work? Train for a charity ride? What does a free bike mean to you? Check back in the coming months to find out more information, including details on how to submit your story.

If you know of somebody else who would like to apply to receive a BikeTown bicycle, please forward this information to them.

BikeTown. Changing Lives One Ride At A Time.
