Committee gets revved up for day of motor-free fun in Weston

From left, Theo and Sadie Rudolph, Katie Park, Mason Hastings, Krista Park and Ameilla Rudolph were ready last year for the Big Bike/Pedi Event that got tropical storm-ed out.

School Road will be closed to all motorized traffic on Sunday, Sept. 9, from noon to 5 for the Big Bike/Pedi Event, sponsored by the Weston Bicycle and Pedestrian Committee.

Children and adults alike are invited to enjoy the vehicle-free road for biking, scooter-riding, walking, and jogging. The school “no skateboarding” policy will, however, remain in effect.

There will also be organized sports activities for all ages.

The Weston Soccer Club is holding a jamboree from noon to 2 on the Administration Field; Weston Travel Basketball is holding a three-on-three tournament on the outdoor court behind central office from 2 to 3; and Weston Little League is hosting a youth home run derby on Coley Field from 2 to 4.

According to Dave Ungar, director of Parks and Recreation, girls softball is scheduled to be playing at one end of the street (North House Field near Hurlbutt Elementary School) and Babe Ruth baseball may be playing on the other end, at Revson Field near the middle school. Spectators are welcome at both.

The Booster Barn at Weston High School will be open for refreshments. People are also welcome to pack picnics.

Cycle Dynamics of Westport will be on hand to provide technical support for all cyclists. Bike helmets are required for riders.

Parking will be available at the middle school and Hurlbutt lots.
