Bike to School Day on May 8

Is your local school celebrating Bike to School Day? Last year around 25 Fairfax schools participated and the goal for this year is to double that number. Why not contact your local school and ask if they are supporting the event? You could volunteer to lead a bike train to the school. If the school does not have bike parking, ask for a rack. If you are told that biking is not allowed at the school, point out the new school policy that parents make the decision whether their kids can ride, not the principal.

FABB's Kelley Westenhoff recently checked out the schools in her area to see whether they had bike racks. See her blog post Less Than a Month Away!:
SO, I challenge you to call your local elementary school and ask the administrators and PTA, 'what are you doing for Bike to School Day?" For little kids, even having those who rode stand up during morning announcements and be recognized goes a LONG way toward encouraging that behavior for the future! Let's get our kids OUT of cars and buses and outside where they belong!
