These pictures will randomly be shared and celebrated through CRBC, SCASD and State College Borough social media, including @BikeStCollege on twitter.

A top prize will be awarded in each category for the most locations ridden to between May 1 and May 30.  Also, a raffle ticket will be given to each individual for every 5 locations. Raffle tickets will be used for various other prizes.  Winners will be announced on May 31st at the Extravaganza! (see below -- you may need to click on "read more" or here to see the full article)

  2. Bike Month – May is bike month. CRBC is not currently planning any major events due to volunteer shortages, but the School district will be holding many events including a photo scavenger hunt, school challenge rides, and bike fair and group rides on May 31st. Stay tuned for more details.
  3. A Centre Region Bicycle Advisory Committee (CRBAC) has been formed from CRBC members, local bike club leaders, COG planners, police, and others. The committee’s purpose is to promote a safe bicycle experience through awareness, proper enforcement, intelligent planning and effective education in the Centre Region. This is part of our next steps in taking the region from Bronze to a Silver Bicycle Friendly Community!
  4. State College Cycling Club’s Tuesday evening road rides have resumed for the season:

Active Commuting
Friday, 27 September 2013 14:04

Many thanks to Dr. Melissa Bopp for attending Wednesday's CRBC meeting and presenting her findings from recent studies about active travel in Centre County. Melissa is a researcher in Penn State’s Department of Kinesiology. She discussed some of the significant influences on biking for transportation in our community and also examined some of the economic implications of active travel in downtown State College. It was a great presentation and gave us a lot to think about in terms of what we can do to further bike/ped travel in the Centre region.
