Antioch School
The Antioch School held its recently-revived Anything On Wheels fundraising event Sunday, Sept. 23, where students, both present and past, ride from the school on Corry Street to Xenia and back for a total of about 15 miles on bicycles, unicycles, skateboards — anything on wheels. Experienced riders can choose to go the whole distance, while those new to wheels can ride around the path surrounding the school playground.

Anything on Wheels rescheduled due to bike path repairs

The Antioch School fundraiser Anything on Wheels, originally scheduled for Sunday, Oct. 6, has been re-scheduled for Sunday, Oct. 13, to accommodate repairs being made to the Little Miami Scenic Trail.

Sections of the bike path in the village will be closed intermittently while repairs are made to the trail, which has not been re-paved in more than 20 years. Funding for the repairs was made possible by a grant from the Ohio Department of Transportation. According to Greene County Parks and Trails Director Chrisbell Bednar, the repairs are urgent, since the “average lifespan of a paved trail is approximately 10 to 12 years.”

Anything on Wheels will be held noon–3 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 13, beginning on the bike path at the corner of Corry and Allen streets.  Antioch School children, their parents and friends will ride the bike path together and can raise money for the school’s scholarship fund by gathering pledges for the distances they travel on bikes, trikes, scooters, unicycles, skateboards and roller blades. The entire course, to Xenia and back, is 15 miles, and a much shorter circuit on The Antioch School grounds will allow younger children to participate. For more information about the fundraiser, call 767-7642.
