Hey Schools, Check This Out!
The Derby Health Collaborative, Derby Recreation Commission, the City of Derby, the Derby Library and Emery Park BMX are planning its annual I Bike Derby event for bike month in May. Our tag line, it’s healthy, it’s fun, it’s trending certainly can influence students.

One important event we hope you will partner on with us is Bike to School Day, scheduled for May 10, 2017. We have asked the Derby Police to be on extra alert that day and we will do a social media campaign educating motorists. With summer months just a few days away, we want to ensure that all students understand bicycle safety and the rules of the road.  We also think it would be super cool if nearly all students could bike to school. Imagine an overflowing bicycle rack!

If you choose to join us, we will make sure your school gets the following:

  1. Opportunity to promote the Free Bicycle Repair Clinics in Derby and in Oaklawn (we fix chains, tires, seats, handlebars free of charge for children)
  2. Coloring Contest for everyone with winners receiving a bicycle helmet.
  3. Bicycle Safety Information for students & parents
  4. Flyer detailing Bike to School Day and other bicycle events in the city
  5. The Bicycle Planning Committee will perform Random Acts of Kindness at your school handing out bicycle helmets, reflective vests, bicycle locks, lights, etc.

We certainly hope you’ll help us promote bicycle safety with your students. Please contact us by April 15 if you’d like to include your school in Bike to School Day. Thank you for your consideration!
