Lt. Governor Sheila Simon participated in the city of Springfield's "Curb Your Car, Bike to Work" event on Wednesday. Simon is an experienced cyclist. She's participated in the event before and often commutes by bike to Carbondale.
Simon also proclaimed Wednesday, Women's Health Day in Illinois. Lawmakers and officials from the state's Department of Public Health, Northwestern University and the Southern Illinois University School of Medicine joined her in the proclamation.
"From biking to work to accessing regular health screenings, there are simple things we can do to keep ourselves and our environment healthier," Simon said.
