The St. Clair County Transit District wants to encourage you to get moving this summer – while exploring over 14 miles of continuous trails in Southwestern Illinois. Whether you are 8 or 80, the bike paths are a family-friendly way to be active and explore nature.
The program is much like those offered through libraries incentivizing kids to read, but instead of reading a certain number of minutes to earn prizes, SCCTD is encouraging participants to track miles on the MetroBikeLink system. From June 1 – August 15, 2022, those who participate can log miles as they ride, walk, wheel, skate or skip along the MetroBikeLink system and win prizes as highlighted below. Participants reaching 100 miles or more will be entered into a drawing for a free bike in August. Younger children are encouraged to ride with their parents on the system. The MetroBikeLink system provides ample opportunities to ride and explore for short or long excursions.
To make tracking easy, Summer Riding Program booklets, as well as individual log sheets, are available at www.scctd.org. Booklets and earned prizes can be picked up from the SCCTD office (27 N. Illinois Street, Belleville, IL 62220) from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. everyone Monday through Friday starting June 1. Individuals can also have booklets and prizes mailed to them by calling SCCTD at 618-628-8090.
Those tracking miles will have the ability to earn the following prizes:
