Tomorrow is national Bike to School Day. Drivers, be aware there may be more than the usual amount of school children darting around as they scoot to school and home. Parents, please make sure your little bikers wear a helmet and are highly visible by wearing bright clothing. Plan your route ahead of time and go for a path that limits street crossings and high traffic areas. For more tips on making sure your child is a safe bicyclist, go to http://www.walkbiketoschool.org/sites/default/files/Parents_Bike_Safety_Tips.pdf
