Safe Routes Chagrin presents.... Bike to School with Dads' Day
At Intermediate School Wednesday, May 4, 2016
Bike to school with your kids on Bike to School Day!
Dads, grandparents, brothers, uncles (moms too) 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:
7:00 am -- South Russell Village Park on Bell Rd. (new this year!)Some parking is available, departing at 7:05am. 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 7:35am.
Once at school, adults can stay to enjoy lemonade, coffee and bagels in the gym...and can stay for a fun in-class activity in your child's homeroom during morning meeting (until about 9:30am).
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.
Can you be a Block Captain for your neighborhood? If so, you will encourage riders to meet at a designated location (like your house) and bike together to and from CFIS. SIGN-UP to be a Block Captain, 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 6th.
