Though it was a hard winter, the weather is clearing. Lots of things happening locally on the cycling front. Read on for info about rumble strips, local rides and charity rides and advocacy activities.

  1. Penn State Cycling Nittany Cycling Classic: The Penn State Cycling Club still needs volunteers for its bike race this Saturday out at Black Moshannon from 11:30am-1:10pm.  If you or anyone else you know would be willing to marshal a corner of the race course it would be a huge help to them.  Contact Andy Artz at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or Cici Cruz-Uribe at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . You can also ride the race! Come out and strut your stuff up Black Moshannon for the chance to win prizes and glory!  The winner of the Cat 4 race will also receive a free one-month membership to Fitology.

  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:

  5. RUMBLE STRIPS: PENNDOT District 2 announced at the State College Transportation Commission meeting that the district adopted a policy of no new side rumble strips unless the road shoulders are at least 6 feet wide. This exceeds PENNDOTs criteria of 4 feet and should be welcome news to area cyclists.
