The theme of Barberton Better Block on Saturday is Health & Wellness. The day begins with Bike 2 Barberton Day. There is a Bike Rodeo for children at the parking lot across the street from the Lake Anna YMCA. There will also be a 1 mile bike ride offered and a 10 mile bike ride. R-D Bike Shop opens at 10 am that day. Prior to opening we will be at the bike ride doing bicycle inspections during registration. If you plan on riding next weekend we recommend you look over your bicycle today and bring it in to us if you feel it requires repair.
Better Block will open at 11 am. There will be a Farmers Market by R-D Bike Shop. Other activities include Barberton Quest Passports, the Summit County Humane Society will have a Pet Mobile, Fit Classes, Boot Camp, Zumba, and Kayaking.
