Heights Bicycle Coalition and Bike Cleveland Jointly Sponsor Coffee Stations for Bike to Work Day on Friday, May 17

Cleveland Heights, Ohio – Bike to Work week is May 13-17. Stop by Heights Bicycle Coalition’s Coffee Station as you bike to work between 7 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. on Friday, May 17th.

As part of National Bike Month, Heights Bicycle Coalition (HBC) will be sponsoring a Coffee Station on National Bike to Work Day, which is Friday May, 17th. The station will be located at one of the busiest bicycle routes in Northeast Ohio, the intersection of Edgehill and Overlook Roads in Cleveland Heights.

Bike commuters are invited to stop at the station for a free cup of Phoenix coffee, a free pastry, and words of encouragement from fellow cyclists. Stop for a minute or hang out with us the whole time! HBC will also be handing out stickers and information on HBC as well as other local bike organizations such as Bike Cleveland.

In addition to the Coffee Station, bike commuters are invited to end their commute at a Bike to Work Party, which will be held from 7 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. at the Downtown Bike Rack (http://goo.gl/maps/J27PS), as well as in University Circle at University East Plaza (http://goo.gl/maps/HV5Ex). Commuters will be able to learn more about great organizations in Cleveland’s bike community and have their bike checked out for safety.
