As Central’s Bike Club enters its second year, co-presidents William Wang and Jonathan Chang, a junior and senior respectively, are hoping to create new opportunities for club members.

In addition to the club’s usual weekly bike rides, they plan to offer bike repair services and an overnight trip this year.

“[We want to start] doing free bike repairs next to the trail or bike repairs for the entire school,” Wang said. “The main purpose is helping out the community using our skills.”

The hope, according to Wang, is to offer service opportunities within Bike Club.

Last year, the club went to Chicago on an overnight bike ride. This year, they’re looking to make similar rides an annual tradition.

“We want to make [the overnight bike trip] our capstone ride each year to do the distance, and we think it’s probably the highlight of the year for us,” Wang said.

For Chang, the Chicago bike ride was one of his favorite parts of the season.

“I think it was eight or nine hours. We saw a lot of things like Northwestern and Loyola, and it was fun to bike for such a long time,” Chang said. “We went from the lakefront all the way up to the Illinois Beach State Park, where we camped over right on the Wisconsin border.”

Bike Club meets on Fridays before school in room 306.
