Reston Schools Connect for Bike to School Day

That's the title of the following article in Reston Patch about Bike to School Day, Wednesday, May 8. Nine schools are participating and for the first year they are holding a Reston challenge similar to the Vienna-area schools bike/walk challenge:
A grass-roots coalition of Reston residents working with the Reston Association Pedestrian & Bicycling Advisory Committee (PBAC) have coordinated nine different schools to create a Reston-wide focus on National Bike to School Day on May 8.

Although many of the schools in Reston have participated in Bike to School Day individually, this is the first time they have come together in a focused and collaborative manner around the event. The organizers hope that this collaboration will help build more awareness and be the starting point for future rides and opportunities. The event has already provided an excellent exchange of resources and innovative ideas centered around cycling and walking to school.

One highlight of the event is a friendly competition between schools to see who can get the most bikes on their bike racks. The organizers understand that just “getting one more bike on a rack” at our area schools will be a success!

The following schools are participating, if you would like to get involved or contact the representative at your local school [See the original article for contact info]:
