Posted on

Unfortunately due to the threat of rain and thunderstorms, the Wheels on the Greenway for May 6th has been canceled. Safety is top priority and we do not want anyone to be on bikes if thunderstorms should pop up. We will not be rescheduling the event, but hope to plan a small gathering at Warnersville Rec Center this summer.  Stay tuned for more info.
