Most schools will be out in a couple of weeks....have a fun summer!
When out and about a little preparation can go a long way to making your day fun!
- Light colors reflect the sun’s rays, and a helmet helps keep the sun off your head. At night, wear bright, better yet retro-reflective, clothing or bands and make sure your batteries have a enough juice in them to finish your journey.
- Preparation: Be sure to have enough water! Storing a half-filled water bottle in the freezer and filling it with regular water just before heading out keeps drinks cool without the hassle of ice.
- Hydration: In addition to carrying enough water for your trip, make sure your body is hydrated before you get on your bike by drinking plenty of water that morning.
- Stop for ice cream! It may not be the best way to beat the heat, but it’ll probably be yummy and fun!
Mark your calendars: October 5, 2016 is Walk+Bike to School Day!
Walk & Bike to School Day events raise awareness of the need to create safer routes for walking and bicycling while showing the importance of increasing physical activity, pedestrian safety, decreasing traffic congestion and concern for the environment.
