Last week was Bike to Work Week, and Friday May 17 was designated as Bike To Work Day. Our side of Downtown Barberton was closed off due to the annual Cherry Blossom Festival on Friday so I made was by bicycle.
This may be due to the weather moderating,(rather than celebrating National Bicycle Month), but we have noticed an increase in commuting being given as the reason for repairs and purchases of bicycles-a great decision especially in and around Barberton.
Don and I spent Saturday May 18 at the Wolf Creek Trailhead of the TowPath Trail that is located at Snyder Avenue. R-D Bike Shop was the water stop sponsor for the FirstMerit Towpath Century Ride held on Saturday and Sunday, May 18-19th. FirstMerit Towpath Trail Century Ride is a fully-supported 101 mile ride on the historic Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail that celebrates this regional trail and promotes the development of connector trails for the regional trail system. The weather was lovely, about 30 degrees warmer than that of the previous Saturday.
