Mountlake Terrace Elementary Granted 42 Bikes
Forty two bikes were delivered to Mountlake Terrace Elementary this month. The bikes are funded through a Safe Routes to Schools grant which is federal funds through the State of Washington. This grant is possible through a partnership between the City of Mountlake Terrace, the Cascade Bicycle Club, and the Edmonds School District. This grant will pay for a new sidewalk in Mountlake Terrace, two trailers full of bikes to expand bicycle education to every elementary and middle school in the Edmonds School District, a free bike helmet for each child at Mountlake Terrace Elementary, a weekly Wheels Club, a Bike Rodeo in May, a bike safety assembly, and a set of bikes at Mountlake Terrace Elementary.
The Edmonds School District and Mountlake Terrace Elementary would like to thank the City of Mountlake Terrace, the Cascade Bicycle Club, and the Edmonds Bicycle Advocacy Group for making this grant possible.
