Miller's Run student learn about bike safety


MILLER'S RUN STUDENTS LEARN BIKE SAFETY SKILLS -- Bicycles are fun to ride. Knowing how to ride safely makes the experience more enjoyable. On Sept. 6, a bicycle safety fair was held at Miller's Run School in Sheffield. Participants had helmet fittings and bicycle safety checks before moving on to "Skills Stations" where they practiced safe riding skills. Skills included "Rock Dodging," looking behind for oncoming traffic without swerving, riding on the right side of the road and starting and stopping efficiently. Above, from left, Mack Pierce, Eli Rexford and Holden Struck wait their turn for the next skill station. Miller's Run School is a partner with Safe Routes to Schools Vermont. Safe Routes to School is a comprehensive program based on a simple premise: our kids should be able to safely walk and bike to school. The Safe Routes to School movement is taking hold across the country, as communities are helping kids and families walk and bike to school. Safe Routes to School programs combine education, engineering, enforcement, evaluation and encouragement to get more kids walking and biking to school and make conditions safer and more convenient.
