We NEED Another Bike Rack!


Zoe Robinson, Grade 9, Guest Writer

So if you didn’t know, I’m a bike rider, and if you’re not one, you won’t know that the bike rack we currently have is always full of bikes from the start of the day to the end of the day! This is a big problem to the bike riders of Palm Beach Lakes High School. Everyday of every week, kids who ride bikes struggle to put their bike in a safe place such as the bike rack; some kids even put their bikes near the bike rack because by the time they get there the rack is filled up already. This can also cause kids to be late getting into school and getting away from school to go home. …  Also bikes can get stolen easily if not put away. Someone can easily take the bikes that can’t fit in the bike rack, and bikes are expensive. From personal experience, my bike was $126 [from] Walmart. To kids, that might not sound like much, but for the adults who have to pay for it, that’s a lot to them and their bank account.  [Can we please get an additional bike rack]?!
