“Our kids are trained for that because we’ve done BikeMN stuff before with our fleet. We’re going to be ahead because our kids are trained. We’re going to have a big boost of review in the first couple weeks of school.”
Since starting BWF three years ago, Katie said that students have really enjoyed the unit and biked in all conditions — rain, sleet, snow, and beautiful weather too.
New York Mills
How can we make physical activity and safety fun for students? New York Mills and Henning School Districts were excited to collaborate on efforts to purchase 40 mountain bikes and a 20-foot enclosed trailer to house the bikes with a Minnesota Department of Transportation grant.
“I’d say my students and I have biked every street in town,” said Cody Gross, Physical Education Teacher at Blackduck Public Schools. Located just a hop, skip, or an easy bike ride from Chippewa National Forest and its namesake, Blackduck Lake, the Blackduck Public Schools has its ducks in a row when it comes to bicycling.
