Check Your Bike Before Each Ride

An easy way to make sure your bike is in good working order is to do an ABC Quick Check.

Air: Be sure you have enough air in your tires
Brakes: Look to see that your brake pads are not worn
Chain and Cranks: Pull on your cranks to see that they are not loose and look to see that the chain is not rusted and it is free of gunk
Quick Release: Make sure all quick releases are closed
Check: Take a slow brief ride to check that your bike is working properly

City Schools of Decatur First Day- August 1

As the school bells ring around the City Decatur on Wednesday, August 1 remember that many of our youth walk and bike to school.  Decatur has had an active SRTS program since 2005 and keep in mind some of the safety tips2nd place poster listed below:

  1. Drivers slow down and follow the traffic rules in school zones.
  2. Use a crosswalk and obey crossing guards.
  3. Wear a helmet when riding a bike to school.
  4. Use main streets and travel in groups when walking to school.
  5. Talk about bus safety.
  6. Be smart about posting back-to-school first day pictures on your social media.
  7. Get to know the other children and parents in your neighborhood and make sure your children use the “buddy system” when walking to and from school.
  8. If you are in the downtown area notice the new blue logos “Walk Your Wheels”.

Decatur SRTS Facts:
