Dru Angelides, 7, and his mom, Rebecca Grant, ride to Geiger Elementary School in Lewiston during National Bike to School Day on Wednesday. The second-grader joined about 60 of his schoolmates, parents, staff and Lewiston Community Resource Officer Joe Philippon during their commute. “On a normal school day, we might have 10 bikes on the bike rack,” said event organizer Bruce Hall, who rode to school with his son, Jason. “Bike to School Day should be every day,” educational technician Anne Behnke said. “It’s good for you. I don’t miss a day. … If I’m late, I catch bus 13,” Behnke said. “May is Bike and Walk to School Month,” said Darcy Whittemore of the Maine Safe Routes to School Program.
