Rockford resident Juliette Kula winner in Illinois Bicycle Safety Quiz Challenge

Online Staff Report

Juliette Kula, of Rockford, was one of nine individuals selected as a first-round winner in the League of Illinois Bicyclists (LIB) Illinois Bicycle Safety Quiz Challenge.

The nine individuals from around the state were selected in a random drawing from thousands of participants who have completed an online quiz at BikeSafetyQuiz.com. Peter Barson from Arlington Heights, Anthony Mikrut from Chicago, Jessica VanDyke from Olney, Maurice Ball from Lisle, Dana Parkinson from Columbia, Scott Richardson from Normal, Nicole Ream-Sotomayor from Urbana and Julie Sherman from Chicago joined Kula from Rockford in receiving a $200 cash prize.

One more individual will be randomly selected to win $200 Nov. 24. LIB invites all bicyclists and motorists statewide to complete a quiz at BikeSafetyQuiz.com. Participants can enter to win one of the upcoming drawings by joining the LIB mailing list at the end of the quiz. Another round of prize drawings is slated for April-May 2015, and quiz participant entries are valid for a year.

LIB, a statewide bicycle advocacy organization, developed BikeSafetyQuiz.com as a convenient, interactive way for bicyclists and motorists to learn more about safely sharing our roads. The interactive quiz includes tailored options for Adult Bicyclists, Child Bicyclists and Motorists. Each quiz presents 25-33 Secretary of State-approved multiple-choice questions covering safety techniques and bicycle laws.

The cash participation prizes are funded by proceeds from the sales of Illinois’ Share the Road specialty license plates. More about LIB’s bicycle safety education efforts as well as the Share the Road license plates can be found at www.BikeLIB.org.
