Smithville Elementary hosted it's first bike clinic Wednesday morning and volunteers worked on 18 bikes in 45 minutes! Volunteers Officer Greg Stewart, Coach Ramsay, and Rob Remlinger checked bike chains, aired up tires, and made other minor adjustments to student and staff bikes. Volunteers arrived beginning at 7 a.m. and by 7:15 a.m. students were lined up to have their bikes inspected. Helmets were also supplied for students riding bikes that needed them.
The bike tools, supplies, and helmets were made possible through the Safe Routes to School Grant. Thank you to Jill Strube with the City of Smithville for helping to secure the items for our students and the bike clinic.
Smithville Elementary plans to host another bike clinic in May to check bikes for summer riding. This clinic will be advertised through announcements, our blog, facebook, and twitter account.
