Join McKinney Middle School on bike path

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

This year, all McKinney seventh graders will participate in “Into the Wild: Learning From the Land,” a collaborative, interdisciplinary project. Students will take an educational trip from the village to Loveland, Ohio, traveling by bike and camping overnight.

As part of preparing for this project, McKinney teachers will offer a series of training rides on the bike path to help students prepare for the trip. These optional rides will take place on Thursday afternoons, and parents, family and community members are also welcome and encouraged to participate. The dates for the trips are as follows:

• Sept. 1 — McKinney to Old Town Reserve (12.2 miles round trip);
• Sept. 8 — McKinney to Beatty Station (14 miles round trip);
• Sept. 15 — McKinney to K and G Bike Center, Xenia (16.5 miles round trip).

All rides will depart from the McKinney parking lot promptly at 4 p.m. The training rides are weather-dependent, and there will be no rain dates. If rides are canceled, an announcement will be made via the school website. For more information, contact McKinney Physical Education and Health Teacher Kate Lohmeyer at
