Wednesday is Bicycle to School Day

Tomorrow—Wednesday, Sept. 20—is the first of three Bicycle to School Days for students and staff in the Unit 1 School District.

When riding a bicycle, be sure to follow these safety tips from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

  • Wear a properly fitted bicycle helmet
  • Adjust your bicycle to fit
  • Check your equipment—tires and breaks—before riding
  • See and Be Seen
  • Control your bicycle
  • Watch for and avoid hazards

Be sure to stay alert, yield to traffic when appropriate,  look before turning and watch for cars—moving and parked.


Last year over 250 students and 20 staff members participated, hopefully even more will participate this year.

Bike to school days will also be held on Wednesday, Sept. 27 and Wednesday, Oct. 4.
