October was Walk to School Month, and we’ve been teaching students about pedestrian and bike safety all month long! RideWise visited several Somerset County schools last month to give “Safety Town” pedestrian safety presentations, teaching students how to walk and bike to school safely, especially in advance of Halloween, when many students would be walking and trick-or-treating after dark.
1,400+ students from Bound Brook’s Smalley Elementary School, North Plainfield’s Stony Brook School and East End School, and Bridgewater’s Crim Elementary School have all taken part in our Safety Town this month! RideWise also participated in Stony Brook’s Walk-a-Thon, a day-long educational event that taught students about the benefits and joy of walking.
