Bike to Work Day, May 17
May 17 is National Bike to Work Day—a day set aside to encourage commuters to pedal rather than drive to work.

Brecksville United Methodist Church is celebrating the day and introducing their new community bike parking area located along Route 21. This bike parking patio features bike racks and a bike fix it stand with tools for common bike repairs. It’s available for anyone to use anytime they’re downtown (and it’s free!)

On National Bike to Work Day, the community is encouraged to cycle to work in downtown Brecksville, or park your bike and take an RTA bus to work.  Grab and go breakfasts will be available from 6 to 11 am, along with bike maps, and other surprises still in the works.  (If you are a local business or bike enthusiast interested in taking part in this event, please message us!)

The RTA 77 route picks up in front of the church.  The route is a “flyer” which makes limited stops before reaching downtown Cleveland. Still need your bike to finish the last leg of your commute downtown?  No problem! Every RTA bus is equipped with a bike rack and a demo bus will be parked in the church parking lot to show you how to safely stow your bike on the bus. 

Since 2015, Brecksville United Methodist Church has been repairing and refurbishing old and outgrown bicycles and donating them to those in need.  To date, over 400 bikes have found new homes! The bike patio is part of the church’s commitment to caring for God’s creation and to helping make Brecksville a bike friendly community.
