From page A5 | September 26, 2014 |

Attention, seventh-graders!

Do you really want to ride your bike to junior high, but you’re not sure how best to get there? Are you a parent unsure about letting your seventh-grader pedal to school? Come join Davis Bicycles! for a practice ride.

“We’ll leisurely travel the Davis Bike Loop, stop at various meeting places to chat about biking to school, and ride some of the greenbelt or neighborhood spurs that lead to Harper and Emerson,” a news release said. “If you join one of these rides, you’ll learn about lots of options for biking to school, and you’ll impress your friends with your awesome knowledge of the streets of Davis!”

To join, just meet the ride at the most convenient point for you, at the departure time listed below. Each participant must have a parent sign a paper liability waiver and wear a helmet. For more information about cycling to school, these rides, Davis Bicycles! or an electronic copy of the waiver, email [email protected]

The clockwise route on Sunday, Sept. 28, will be most useful for students who want to ride from North Davis (possibly some Willett or Chávez students on the west side), North Davis Elementary and Birch Lane Elementary to Holmes Junior High; East or Central Davis to Harper Junior High; Olive Drive, Solano Park and Orchard Park to Emerson Junior High; and far West Davis to Emerson.

Departure times are at:
* North Davis Elementary bike racks, 8 a.m.;
* Holmes front bike racks, 8:30 a.m.;
* Drexel Drive and Pole Line Road near Birch Lane Elementary, 8:40 a.m.;
* Korematsu Elementary bike racks, 8:55 a.m.;
* Harper bike racks, 9:20 a.m.;
* Montgomery Elementary bike rack, 9:45 a.m.;
* Emerson bike racks on Humboldt Avenue, 10:30 a.m.;
* Whaleback Park, 10:45 a.m.;
* Emerson bike racks on Humboldt Avenue, 11:15 a.m.; and
* Sycamore Park, 11:30 a.m.

The counter-clockwise route on Sunday, Oct. 5, would be helpful for getting from Chávez/Willett to Emerson, South Davis to Harper and East Davis to Holmes.

Departure times are at:
* North Davis Elementary bike racks, 8 a.m.;
* Chávez front bike racks, 8:15 a.m.;
* Emerson bike racks on Humboldt Avenue, 8:45 a.m.;
* Whaleback Park, 9 a.m.;
* Emerson bike racks on Humboldt Avenue, 9:30 a.m.;
* Montgomery Elementary bike rack, 10:10 a.m.;
* Harper bike racks, 10:50 a.m.;
* Korematsu Elementary bike racks, 11 a.m.;
* Drexel Drive and Pole Line Road near Birch Lane Elementary, 11:15 a.m.; and
* Holmes front bike racks, 11:45 a.m.
