Nearly five children are hit by people driving every day in Illinois while walking or biking within one block of a school.
Arrive in style
Looking good and staying comfortable
If your trip is less than 5 miles, you can typically wear your everyday clothes for your ride.
Choose thin natural fabrics and sweat-wicking polyester fabrics for staying cool and looking nice.
Consider an upright riding bike with a chain guard, skirt guard and fenders to keep your clothes free of debris.
Use an ankle strap to keep your pants cuff clean.
Store professional clothes at your office to wear once you arrive.
Consider a simple hairstyle that is less affected by helmets.
Wear a hat or bandanna under your helmet to reduce marks from helmets and the effects of wind on your hair.
