Great Turnout for Bike to School Day 2015
18 Solano County schools participated in Bike to School Day on May 6th. Students wearing their helmet, walking their bike through the crosswalk and following traffic safety rules, received an LED bike light for their efforts.
Thank you to the volunteers that make these events successful at the school sites.
Great job to all of the students that got out of the car to ride and roll to school!
