posted Mar 24, 2017, 4:38 AM by Don Murphy

In an effort to increase the number of students and other community members in using cycling as one of their means of transportation, the ECO Team of St. Patrick's High School is holding a Bike Day.  The event is designed to get people past those barriers that keep them from using their bicycle regularly.


You are invited to visit us on Saturday April 1, 2017 from 10 am to 12 pm  at St. Pat's High (2525 Alta Vista Drive) to browse our booths set up in the Heron Rd parking lot:


“Get tuned-up”:  Basic cycle maintenance clinic (tires, brakes, seat and handle adjustments, etc.)

“Safe Cycling”:  Information on Safe cycling strategies, how to be safe on the road

“Route planning”:  Have a bike route specialist help plan your route to school or work, avoiding high traffic areas or dangerous intersections

“Get kitted”:  What sort of gear will you need to get to school/work..racks, rain gear, fenders, locks, visibility


We will be finishing the day with a community ride (weather dependent), and return to the school for a BBQ.


Hope you can join us!
