Bike to School upcoming

Mallory Hornsberger, Staff Reporter

Elk Grove will be holding its 3rd annual Bike to School day on Friday, May 20 beginning at 7:30 a.m.

One week prior to the event, a “bagels n’ biking” meeting will be held. This meeting will educate students and faculty about bike safety.

Around a dozen students and staff participated in this event last year, and the hope is that the number will increase this year.

When participants arrive at school the day of the event, they will be welcomed with music, food, and a raffle. There will also be free tune-ups on site.

Health careers teacher Caryn Blanke says the purpose is to “raise awareness about bike safety and give students and staff a day to utilize alternative forms of transportation.”
