Safe Routes Chagrin presents.... Bike to School with Dads' Day
At Intermediate School Wednesday, May 10, 2017
Bike to school with your kids on Bike to School Day!
Dads, grandparents, brothers, uncles (moms too), teachers and students are encouraged to bring their bikes and helmets and meet in their neighborhoods to bike to school together. If too far to bike, they can join one of our "Meet and Ride" locations and bike as a large group with police escort.
MEET and RIDE locations:
7:15 am -- South Russell Village Park on Bell Rd. (new this year!)Some parking is available, departing at 7:20am. This riding group will join the group at the Cleveland Clinic Chagrin Falls Family Health Center and ride to school together.
7:30am -- Cleveland Clinic Chagrin Falls Family Health Center at 551 E. Washington Street, departing at 7:40am.
Once at school, adults can stay to enjoy lemonade, coffee and bagels in the gym.
After school, Dads and other adults meet with students from their neighborhood (same as morning group) and bike home. Students who live too far away can be picked up with their bikes in the CFIS parking lot during regular dismissal.
PLEASE MAKE A PLAN with your student so they know who to ride with and whether you are picking them up or whether they are riding home with friends.
Planning to ride from your neighborhood? If so, please encourage riders to meet at a designated location (like your house) and bike together to CFIS. SIGN-UP to be a rider, and see who's riding from your neighborhood at the link on this event page.
If event must be called due to severe weather, you will receive a dial-out from the school. Rain date is May 12th.
Sponsored by the Cleveland Clinic, Mountain Road Cycles and the Chagrin Falls Dads' Club
Elementary Grade students: Hold on to your helmets; saddle up your bikes and ride on over to Philomethian Street in Chagrin Falls on Saturday, April 29 from noon to 3pm for Bike-a-Palooza.
FREE FOOD and AWESOME PRIZES
It’s a fun, interactive, and challenging bike event for families of students in grades K - 6 who can ride a two-wheeler.
The Palooza has everything from helmet fitting, bike registration, and safety skill training. Bike experts from Geiger’s Ski & Sport Haus will be on hand to inspect bikes and make minor repairs.
There is something for everyone. Younger students will learn basic skills like stopping, scanning and signaling turns and will practice on a series of courses in the parking lot at Chagrin Falls Intermediate School. All participants will practice the safe way to exit a driveway, how to look for traffic, negotiate an intersection, and avoid common road hazards. Older students will engage in competitions and practice riding with a backpack.
The event is FREE to everyone.
Sponsored by the Chagrin Falls Police Department, Safe Routes Chagrin, and Geiger's Ski Haus.

Flat tire? Squeaky brakes? If your bike is ready to roll to a new family, CFHS Student Council can help!
From April 7-22, donate your used bike to the Ohio City Bike Co-op to be reconditioned for refugees settling in Cleveland. Your bike will ride again providing essential transportation for adults and children for work and school as they get to know Cleveland. Your generosity can also extend to volunteer opportunities at the co-op or mentoring a refugee family in bike safety. Interested in finding out more? Go to www.OhioCityCycles.org to learn all about the many great programs offered. To support the junior class CFHS Student Council in this fun and rewarding effort to reach out in the Greater Cleveland community, please consider making a donation! Thank you for your consideration!(Bikes not appropriate for the refugee program will be reconditioned and used in the co-op’s educational training or sold at a fair price in their resale area to support ongoing programs.) ...
