BATON ROUGE, La—May is Bike Month, and we are pumped to pedal this Friday in celebration of Bike to School Day! On Friday, May 7th students from Buchanan Elementary and University Terrace at Polk will be celebrating and riding their bikes to school the right way! The Safety Place, Front Yard Bikes, EBR Sheriff’s Office, and ICARE will be hosting a Bike Parade to increase safety awareness for young bikers. The event will allow students to bike together and enjoy valuable health and safety messages, while promoting safe biking to school!
School staff, parents, community partners, local law enforcement and city official representatives will be joining us for our Bike to School Day Bike Parade, escorting students to their respective schools at 7:15 AM. We will meet at the Dr. Leo S. Butler Community Center – 950 E. Washington St., Baton Rouge, LA 70802. Before rolling out, we will review traffic safety rules/hand signals and provide helmets and bike lights to those in need. Participants will also receive a snack and bottle of water. Grab your bike (helmet) or walking shoes, and come stroll into safety for our kids!
