On May 4, for the fifth year in a row, Cleveland Heights City Council will pass a resolution declaring May Bike Month in the community. That bit of business will kick off numerous events in May highlighting the growth of bicycling in the city.
May 6 is Walk or Bike to School Day. In the spring and fall, Walk or Bike to School Day encourages children and their parents to use the trip to school for some of the 60 minutes of exercise children need every day to be fit and ready to learn when they arrive in their classrooms. The dates are listed on the CH-UH City School District calendar and school websites. The City of Cleveland Heights uses some of the Safe Routes to School funds received last year from the Ohio Department of Transportation to produce flyers. Ruffing Montessori School also joins the fun.
