CHICO, Calif. - The Chico Velo Club is making it easier for bicycling to school.


The local bicycle club has raised enough money to install bicycle pumps at 6 schools all across Chico.

On Tuesday, they installed the pumps at Chico Junior high, McManus, Bidwell Jr. High, Hooker Oak, Citrus and Chapman Elementary.

The pumps are being installed to not only encourage kids to ride their bikes to school but also to make sure the kids' tires are well-inflated.


“It's important for kids to bicycle ride to school because it actually helps obesity rates, it lowers obesity by 20% even just kids walking or riding a short distance every day, just having that little bit of exercise helps make a difference overall,” said Renee Buchan.

There will be a pump dedication in just a few weeks.

The Chico Velo Club hopes to have pumps at all 18 Chico unified school district schools by this time next year.

The pumps were paid for by Chico Velo Club fundraising efforts, and the Sunrise Rotary Club.
