Safe Routes to School - Put a Little Spring in Your Step:

Post date: Mar 05, 2018 12:26:11 AM

Daylight savings time begins March 11th. Our days grow lighter longer. Drivers please pay particular attention for more students walking and biking to and from school. Dust off the bike helmets and make sure they still fit properly. Spring bike maintenance ABC’s: Air up your tires to pressure printed on tire wall, test/adjust your brakes for proper working order, and lubricate the chain. Most likely, your child has grown since the last bike ride. The seat position should be set so the extended leg has a slight bend at the knee. Wear sturdy, closed-toed shoes when biking to school. Be safe and always wear a helmet & obey the rules of the road. Be seen and wear light, bright, and reflective clothing at night. Be smart and use hand signals to show your intentions and ride in a predictable fashion.
