      Bike to School Day

      A few Ishpeming Township students joined a national movement to exercise as a group.

      Students and teachers from Aspen Ridge Middle School and Westwood met behind the Ishpeming Township Hall at 7:30 a.m. to bike to school together.

      Bike to School Day events help to raise awareness of the need to create safer routes for bicycling and walking.

      One Aspen Ridge Middle School physical education teacher says there are already plenty of safe routes in the local neighborhoods for students. Students were happy the weather allowed them to ride to school.

      More than 150 schools in Michigan were expected to participate in Bike to School Day.
