BSBP Rib Event 2014 001


Another Rockin’ Good Time


On Saturday night the Bay Skate and Bike Park foundation held our Rib Rockin’ Cook-Off and we were fortunate to have perfect weather and an amazing turn out. For the first time in 5 years the event was SOLD OUT! We would like to thank everyone who participated – from the talented grill teams, to the volunteers, to Cafe Melissa, to the Bay Village Green Team, to Sweet! The Mobile Cupcakery, to the band Hypnotic Dog, to those who donated items to be raffled off, to our judges, and of course our supporters.

Without all of you this event would not be possible or so much fun.





2014 National Bike Challenge – Free and Open to all Residents


Last year, Bay Village beat out 64 other northeast Ohio communities to rank #1 in our region in the 2013 National Bike Challenge.  Bay Village had 27 riders who rode a total of 27,685 miles during the 5 month challenge!  We know that many more Bay residents rode their bicycles last summer, but their miles were not counted in the challenge.  No matter how little you ride, we want you to join Village Bicycle Cooperative in the 2014 National Bike Challenge!  Every mile counts!

This is NOT a fundraiser, so you don’t need to solicit any money from friends. In this challenge, you simply sign up for a free account and log your bicycling miles between Thursday, May 1, 2014 and Tuesday, September 30, 2014. Local cities, and cities around the country, are pitted against each other.  The cumulative total of all miles biked by all participants is also used in advocacy campaigns aimed at increasing funding for safe biking infrastructure throughout the country. Signing up and logging miles for the National Bike Challenge is easy. It only takes a few minutes to sign up and less time to log miles. Instructions are in the PDF linked here:

Contact if you have any issues signing up.





Rib Rockin Cook-Off 2014 is Sat. June 7th at Bay Lodge. Details coming soon! BRING ON THE HEAT!



Village Bicycle Cooperative has a had a wonderful summer and appreciated all of the support from the community and would like to show their appreciation by hosting a “fixathon” on Saturday August 17th from 2-5pm in the parking lot at city hall. Bring your bike and members of the Village Bike Coop will fix it up.  No major repairs, but general adjustments and maintenance.

Also, Rustbelt welding will have our new ART Rack completed and we are hoping that the city can have it installed by the 17th so we can showcase the collaboration between all of the parties involved (VBC,BSBP,Green Team, and the city).

More details coming soon…
