WEWS News Channel 5: Bike to School Challenge Starts and Safe Streets introduced

May 9, 2012

Thanks to Tom Livingston and WEWS News Channel 5 for their coverage of the Bike To School Challenge:

Bike to School Challenge

Motorists in some northeast Ohio communities may notice a lot more students riding their bikes to school this month.

Starting last Monday, middle school students in Bay Village, Rocky River and Medina started the three-week-long Bike to School Challenge.

Sponsored by Century Cycles and Raleigh Bicycles, the challenge will encourage 4,500 students to help the environment and improve their health.

On Wednesday, National Bike to School Day, 1,114 students at participating schools rode to their bikes.
“We’re definitely seeing tons and tons of different venues and different things where bikes are involved,” said Scott Cowan of Century Cycles.

Some students took up the challenge even before its official start according to Bay Middle School teacher Lawrence Kuh.

“Friday, before the program started, we had 250 bikes and the program had even started yet,” he said.
