Vienna Bike/Walk Challenge - Thursday results

Here are the latest results from the Vienna Bike/Walk Challenge (click on table to enlarge). The challenge demonstrates what happens when kids are encouraged to bike and walk to school:

The standings are:

Challenge Cup:
  1. Vienna
  2. Westbriar
  3. Wolftrap
Biking Cup:
  1. Vienna
  2. Wolftrap
  3. Marshall Road
All schools had great turnouts today after their Walking Wednesdays spikes.

Vienna set what we believe is a county-wide record of 155 students ride bikes to school today - that's 41% of K-6 students in attendance. We’re seeing a lot of young cyclists getting involved this year. Vienna Mayor Laurie DiRocco was handing out Biking Viking wristbands to the students that biked in. With the addition of 62 walkers Vienna Elementary beat their Walking Wednesday totals (as did Westbriar) and has retaken the lead for the Challenge Cup. Vienna appears to have a well deserved lock on the Biking Cup but both Wolftrap and Marshall Road deserve recognition for their exceptionally strong biking numbers.

Wolftrap has slipped to third place in the Challenge Cup with a strong showing by Westbriar. Westbriar is currently a very close second to Vienna and Louise Archer is licking at the Wolfie’s heels.

A strong turnout by either Westbriar or Louise Archer is all that is needed to capture the Challenge Cup for the first time. Westbriar had their best day yesterday and is poised to set a school best tomorrow. Louise Archer is making a push including running a bike train from Vienna Elementary. It would be quite an end to the challenge if mostly former VES students have a hand in spoiling a VES sweep.
