Bike to School at Franklin Middle School


Posted on May 31st, by admin in Uncategorized. No Comments

Franklin MSMayor Foster and Councilmember Suja Lowenthal joined Franklin Middle School students and teachers to wrap up National Bike Month with a Bike to School ride.

The Bike to School event was organized to encourage students to safely use their bicycles for means of transportation.  Safe Moves, a non-profit organization that is dedicated to saving children through traffic safety education, organized this ride. Through Safe Moves, Bike Long Beach is providing Safe Routes to School programs to every elementary and middle school student in Long Beach. A federal Safe Routes To School grant supporting this program in Long Beach was recently extended two years through 2014.
