Successful Mayor Ride

On Saturday, May 16, 2015, a large group of local cyclists enjoyed a family-friendly bike ride to celebrate May Bike Month. 30+ riders, including CentreBike members, mayor Elizabeth Goreham, and local families, biked a 7-mile loop around State College.

The ride was a great way to kick off a summer of cycling, and to raise awareness of the importance of bike safety and active transportation in our region.

CentreBike hopes to make the event an annual celebration to welcome spring, and to encourage families to get out and ride together.

It’s almost here: Friday, May 15 is National Bike-to-Work Day. Jump on your bike, and join your fellow two-wheeled commuters in the Centre Region!
