CHICAGO – Lt. Governor Sheila Simon will join Secretary of State Jesse White, officials from the Illinois Department of Transportation and the League of Illinois Bicyclists (LIB) to launch a new online bicycle safety quiz and promote bicycle safety in Illinois.

“Just as drivers must share the road with bikers, we as bicyclists need to do our part to keep roads safe,” said Simon, a member of the LIB and Carbondale Bicycle Club. “Whether I am biking along the streets or paths of Chicago or on quiet roads in southern Illinois, I follow the rules of the road and do what I can to keep myself and fellow travelers safe.” 

Simon will help unveil LIB’s “Illinois bicycle safety quiz challenge,” which is available for free to all bicyclists and motorists. Lt. Governor Simon earned gold level on the quiz, which can be found at bikesafetyquiz.com.
