Back by popular demand, Duxbury will hold its second annual Bike to School Day on Wednesday, May 6th, in conjunction with National Bike to School Day.
Alden and Middle School students from all over town are encouraged to dust off their bikes, tighten their helmets and join the fun. Police will be stationed at major crossing points along 3A to assist students and any adult chaperones who choose to ride directly to school from their respective neighborhoods.
For those who live farther away, there will be a central rallying point at the Foodies parking lot for parents to drop off kids with bikes. A handful of parents will be available to fill vehicles with excess baggage, such as musical instruments, and deliver to the school. Police bicycles will provide patrol for the ride up Washington Street to St. George. CycleLodge of Pembroke will be on site for any last minute mechanical issues.
The afternoon ride home will happen in reverse, with parents and police in support.
Mark your calendars and stay tuned for exact meeting times. Let’s hope for good weather and a great opportunity to promote safety, fitness and awareness of cycling.
