Kids Get Schooled on Bike Safety

GVB just finished implementing more bicycle and pedestrian safety programs in our District 51 Elementary Schools.  Tope, Rocky Mountain, Dual Immersion Academy and now Fruitvale have embraced the Safe Routes to School program.  Don't take our word for it, check out the local news coverage by clicking on the links below. 
If your child's school isn't among those listed above, feel free to email us at and see if we can add your school to next year's list!

Sept. 29 Junk Ride

The pedal-powered litter reduction effort along Rim Rock Drive was awesome!  Thanks to the GVB folks who helped make it happen on the bike seat, the NPS staff behind the scenes, REI for organizing a full spread of lunch and prizes, and the herd of bighorn sheep who yielded at the roadside to let us continue eastbound.
I look forward to next year's Public Lands Day and to coordinate something fun with the following weekend's Tour of the Moon.
