While summer break may have just started, it’s important now more than ever to prepare for a safe back-to-school season. Each state has its own regulations on how it will handle students attending classes in the COVID-19 era. If your school district is allowing students to go back to school, students that ride their bikes will need safe ways to store their bikes during the school day.
Social Distancing Bike Storage
In the past, the number of bikes stored on a bike rack wasn’t a concern. Moving forward, additional bike racks will be needed on campus to maintain the health and safety of students. Fortunately, bike racks are affordable and easy to securely mount on campus. Some bike racks hold three bikes while others hold up to 11 bikes at maximum capacity. Encourage students to skip a space when storing bikes to help prevent any part of the bike from touching someone else’s.
In addition to having additional bike racks, sanitizing the racks daily will help maintain everyone’s safety. It only takes three simple steps to sanitize these bike racks. If possible, place a hand sanitizing station next to the bike racks for students to use before and after locking their bikes.
Your students’ health and preventing the spread of COVID-19 is important. We offer some Quick Ship bike racks in our online store.
