District celebrates National Bike to School Day

ALBANY, N.Y. (May 8, 2019) – Albany Police Department bike officers and mounted police greeted Arbor Hill Elementary students as they began their day. The special reception was part of National Bike to School Day, an event intended to promote activity and bicycle safety.

 

Once inside, kindergarten through second grade was treated to an interactive presentation that provided important bike tips, thanks to the Albany County DPW Traffic Safety Education Program.

 

"This could not have come at a more perfect time," said principal Rosalind Gaines-Harrell of the event. "The nice weather is here and our students are anxious to to be outside and now they are equipped with the rules and regulations of the road to keep them safe this spring and summer."

 

In addition to the Albany County DPW Traffic Education Program, the event was made possible thanks to valuable community partners: Albany police Department, NYS Department of Health, NYS Department of Motor Vehicles and AAA Hudson Valley.

 

More than 1,000 events are held in 49 states to celebrate Bike to School Day, which started in 2012.

 

Here is a link to a Facebook photo album from the event.
