Bicycle Volunteer Team


Thank you!

You are making an enormous difference! This morning plants a seed for change among the young people in our community, a seed of health, happiness and environmental stewardship.

Here is what you need to know to make the day a success:

  1. Arrive at the Keene YMCA on Wednesday, May 15* no later than 6:30 AM, parking in the upper parking lot.

  2. Check-in at the white tent.

  3. Bring your bicycle, helmet and lights for your bicycle or body if you have them.

  4. Put on your florescent vest, supplied at the white tent, and wear bright clothing.

  5. Be ready to leave the parking lot at exactly 7:10 AM.

  6. Students must ride single file on the right-hand side of the road along with traffic.

  7. Obey all traffic signs, signals and traffic officers.

  8. Ride on the left-hand side of the students, acting as a buffer between students and vehicles.

  9. Follow the adult volunteer in front of you. They will be riding the safest route.

  10. Use hand signals for all turns. (Click here for a refresher.)

  11. Walk your bicycle on all sidewalks.

Reach out with questions. I remain happy to help.

*Rain day will be scheduled for Thursday, May 16 and will be determined by noon on Tuesday. You will receive an email announcing the day change, if needed.
