Next Ride: Bike club is back! Pump up your tires for this Saturday 4/18! 10am to 12am. We will be going on the trail. If your bike needs a fixin', email Mr. Lueken (adam.lueken@d128.org) and hopefully he can help you get it all fixed up by this Saturday. Meet in the front of the school, bring a helmet. See you there! Make sure to have a parents waiver!  Cycling_Club_Parent_Permission_Form.doc

 
 

 

Last year we had a blast with biking to the lake, biking to the bagel shop, biking to LHS, biking around VHHS, and biking all over Vernon Hills! This year (2014/2015) we hope to expand our biking and expand our group! Everyone is welcome, no bike necessary. If you do not have a bike, we have a couple extra that you can borrow, but reservations are first come, first serve. If you have a bike, but need help making it work well, all students get free lessons on how to repair your own bike (for free)!
