The GCCS Bike Train will run each Wednesday, beginning on May 8th and continue through June 12th. There are two (possibly three) bike trains: Winton/Blossom and Meigs St., with a possible Brighton bike train.  Each bike train will leave at 7:30 and plan to arrive at GCCS at 7:50.
The Winton/Blossom bike train will leave the corner of Winton Rd. and Blossom (on the Tops corner) and head west on Blossom. We will stop at 7:35 at the corner Hampden and Blossom. We will continue on Blossom to University and stop at the Merriman St. playground on the corner of Merriman and University. We will turn onto Oxford and head to GCCS through the rear RMSC driveway. This bike train will be led by Michelle and Carl Justice.
The Meigs Street bike train meets at 7:30 at the Ellwanger Berry Park at Linden/Meigs and doesn’t make stops along the way. This train stays on Meigs until Meigs ends at East Avenue. The bike train will turn right onto East, cross Goodman, and turn right into the RMSC’s East Ave entrance. This bike train will be led by Jack Peltz and Kevin Kelley.
The Brighton Commons bike train is still in the planning stages. If you’re a Brighton resident, and interested in having your child participate in the bike train, please email Alexis Stubbe at astubbe@gccschool.org.
We have adults to lead, but any additional parents who’d like to ride with their children are strongly encouraged to do so. Please be sure your child is equipped with a working bicycle, helmet, and is able to independently ride a bike. Also, we encourage kids to bring their own bike locks. A cable belonging to the school will be provided to lock the bikes of those without their own bike locks.
It’s important to note that bike trains do not bring kids home, so please make arrangements for your child (and his/her bike) to arrive home safely after Community Circle.
If heavy downpours/ thunderstorms show up on a Wednesday morning, it’s likely bike trains won’t run. Please watch the weather forecast.
Dust off those bikes and inflate those tires! We hope to see you.
Thank you! Go bikes!
