To get ready, students have been raising money, making posters and inviting riders into their classrooms. . . .Pajamas, posters and pep-rallies? . . . People riding bikes through crowds? . . . . I will remember this the next time I write my check for school taxes . . . and vote on the next school budget.
In Utica, themed days were held such as PJ’s for Posters where students could wear their pajamas to school if they brought in a quarter to purchase posters.
Other schools adopted riders . . . the adopted riders have been traveling to respective schools giving safety talks and running pep rallies for the past month.
On Friday, Corasanti held a pep rally at Myles Elementary in New Hartford and talked about safety for kids while some off the ride participants rode through the crowd on their bikes. . . . More than a dozen riders from Myles will participate in the event . . .
