BSD News- Walk and Roll Day 2/24!

Wet Weather Doesn’t Mean You Need to Stay Inside!

Join K-12 students and families for a wintery walk or roll in your neighborhood on February 24th!

The following tips can help keep you safe and comfortable while walking and rolling in Winter:

  • Be Safe – Stay 6 feet away from those not in your household and wear a mask.
  • Be Seen – Wear bright, reflective clothing, use a bike light, and stay alert on dark, winter days.
  • Be Prepared – Dress for the weather. Rain gear and warm layers keep you dry and comfortable all season long.

After your trip, visit the link below and fill out the form to earn a raffle prize. 25 raffle prizes will include: reflective umbrella, clip-on safety light, bicycle seat cover and bicycle light! Tag #BSDtogether #BSDsaferoutes to be featured on BSD’s social media accounts.

¡El clima lluvioso no significa que deba permanecer adentro!

¡Únase a los estudiantes y familias de K-12 para una caminata de invierno en su vecindario el 24 de febrero!

Los siguientes consejos pueden ayudarle a mantenerse seguro y cómodo al caminar y/o andar sobre ruedas durante el invierno:

  • Cuídese - Manténgase a 6 pies de distancia de las personas que no formen parte de su familia inmediata y use una mascarilla.
  • Sea visible - Use ropa brillante y reflectante, utilice una luz para bicicleta y manténgase alerta en los días oscuros de invierno.
  • Esté preparado – Vístase apropiadamente para el invierno. Vestirse con varias capas y con ropa apropiada para la lluvia nos mantienen secos y cómodos durante toda la temporada.

Después de su paseo, haga clic en el enlace y complete el formulario. Ingrese su nombre si desea ganar uno de los premios de la rifa. Los 25 premios de la rifa incluirán: paraguas reflectantes, luces de seguridad con clip, fundas para el asiento de la bicicleta y luces para bicicleta.
