This past June, the League of Illinois Bicyclist (LIB) launched www.bikesafetyquiz.com, an interactive resource with brief but thorough quiz-based lessons - one each for Adult Bicyclists, Child Bicyclists, and Motorists. The content, approved by the Secretary of State's Office, covers relevant state laws, safety techniques and how to avoid common crash types. The LIB has started working with bike shops, bike clubs, driver's education instructors, towns, schools, police and others to promote its use. If you have not seen it yet, check it out and take the quiz today! For those who complete the quiz, a "Certificate of Completion" can be printed out.
Last night, the Z Tour Bike Ride was presented with "Service Organization of the Year Award" at the Princeton Chamber of Commerce Annual Dinner. Many thanks to the Chamber for this honor and to all who have made the ride possible. Our youth are 25% of our population, but 100% of our future!
Just a little bike humor on a bitter cold and snowy day........
