This past Friday, Laning Avenue School hosted a bike event that ended with one lucky student going home with a new bike.

The event was a spin-off of a program called Bike 4 A Bike, that was started three years ago by Montclair Bikery. On Wednesday, March 30, Joe Ewing of Montclair Bikery came to Laning with Verona resident Dave Adornato to talk to students  about cycling safety and the rules of the road. Ewing returned on Friday, April 8, and watched as more than 80 kids–all in bike helmets–rolled their way through a series of biking activities and contests organized by our very own Tracy Bermeo. Montclair Bikery gave out dozens of prizes, including bike helmets, water bottles, bike computers, and a free bike, which was won by Andrew Hunt. Laning students also got t-shirts designed by Laning mom Susan Licalsi, courtesy of the school’s SCA.

Under Bike 4 A Bike, Montclair Bikery tries to encourage kids to ride by awarding them points for their rides to school every day. The points can be redeemed for prizes, much like those awarded to the Laning students. Bike 4 A Bike operates in several Montclair schools and Montclair Bikery hopes to expand it to Verona in full in the future.
