Greylock Elementary Celebrates Bike-To-School Day

Print Story | Email Story

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Greylock Elementary School celebrated Bike-To-School Day by hosting a Family Bicycle Night organized by the Greylock School PTG, Northern Berkshire Community Coalition’s Mass in Motion and Safe Routes to School on Thursday, May 30.

In May, the North Adams Public School Committee approved a pro bike-to-school policy for the 2019-20 school year. This policy will promote bicycling to school and enforce bicycle safety. Greylock School will be the pilot school for a Bike-to-School Day in the fall, so Family Bicycle Night was an opportunity for students to ride their bicycles and learn and practice bicycle safety.

The event included a bike safety check station led by the North Adams Police Department, who provided and fitted bike helmets, and a bike rodeo set up by MassBike, with courses set up to learn and practice bicycle riding safety and the rules of the road. Students received a certificate of completion and free bike gear give-aways. There was also a free raffle with chances to win new bike lights, locks and one new bicycle.

This event drew more than 100 students and family members. Greylock School looks forward to doing another Bike-to-School Day in the fall.

Edge, MCLA Men Earn MASCAC Shutout

WORCESTER, Mass. -- Mount Greylock Regional School graduate Sam Edge made four saves Saturday to earn a shutout as the MCLA men's soccer team earned its first MASCAC win of the season, 1-0, at Worcester State.
 
Junior Andrew Nygard scored the contest's only goal in the 31st minute, as he headed home a Ryan Wanek throw-in to put his team ahead 1-0.
 
In the second half, Worcester State (4-8, 1-3) poured on constant pressure, but just couldn't put the ball in the back of the net. In the 52nd minute, Worcester State had three consecutive brilliant scoring opportunities, but MCLA keeper Edge was up to the task with phenomenal diving saves on attempts from Laszlo Dorogi, Alfred Koroma and Prince Gyau.
 
Worcester State appeared to tie the game in 87th minute, but a Lincoln Henry goal was taken off the board after he was ruled offside on the play. Worcester State was unable to mount any more high-quality chances, and the Trailblazers (3-8, 1-3) escaped with the 1-0 victory.
