Biking only
Walking only
Walking and Biking

How to use the signs

The signs are formatted for printing on 11 x 17 paper, portrait.

Post them in places where they are easy to see and easy to read; close to where students walk or bike; and at places where students need to make a turn or continuing traveling.

Most of all, have fun and use safe walking and biking habits.
