Did You Know?

Half of school children walked or biked to school in 1969, but only 13 percent were doing it in 2009.

Biking expo in Wilmette on Sat., May 7

Want to learn how to teach your child to ride a bike? Unsure about how a bike helmet fits? Need tips on buying a bike?

The event also offers the opportunity to bring in your old or unused bicycles for a donation to the Recyclery. 

Oh, and if your kids ride to the library between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., they'll enjoy free lemonade and cookies. And if they wear a helmet, they'll get a free water bottle. Learn more.
