ASH bikes to school
ALBANY, N.Y. (May
9, 2018) --
They arrived on bicycles, skateboards and
scooters. One or two were pushed in strollers. All were on the move.
Students at Albany School of Humanities (ASH) joined thousands of
schools across the country on Wednesday to celebrate Bike to School Day,
a nationwide effort to encourage kids to bike to school and to be safe
when they do.
ASH bikers of all stripes took part in a bike rodeo when they got to
school. Joining in the fun were Superintendent Kaweeda G. Adams, Mayor
Kathy Sheehan, Acting Albany Police Chief Robert Sears, police officers
on bikes and horses, and Otto the talking auto.
The event also included an assembly that provided tips about being safe,
smart bikers and walkers.
A big thanks to our community partners who helped make the day a
success: The Albany Police Department, the Albany County DPW Traffic
Safety Education Program, AAA Hudson Valley, the New York State
Department of Health and the Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee
