Students Earn Bike Licenses and Prepare for Biking to School

Second grade students recently earned bike licenses thanks to a long-standing tradition on St. Mark’s Campus.  The Second Grade Bike Rodeo was held last week for students to learn bicycle safety, road rules, and proper riding technique. The morning began with LakeShore Bicycles conducting safety checks on all student bikes. Students also attended a safety briefing from JSO Officers. To implement what they learned, everyone rotated through a series of obstacle courses to practice hand signaling, stopping at an intersection, coming to a complete stop, weaving around obstacles in the road, and more!. 

Once in third grade, students are allowed (and encouraged if it is possible) to ride their bikes to and from school. After this successful Bike Rodeo, they are licensed and ready!
