The Biking Cup is given to the school with the highest percentage of bike riders relative to the total number of participants. Of the 805 total participants Vienna Elementary had this week, 258 — 32.04 percent — came in on bikes.

At Wolftrap and Westbriar Elementary schools, 28.91 and 23.68 percent of all participants, respectively, used bikes to get to school.

The Challenge Cup is awarded to the school with the largest percentage increase in participants over last year's challenge. Wolftrap Elementary attracted 68 more students this year for a total of 1,155 participants overall, compared with 1,087 in 2011.
We hope to have a summary report of Bike to Work Day activities around the county. Some of the Reston schools postponed their Wednesday event due to the weather forecast and their event was held today. We saw this sign near Terraset Elementary School in Reston warning motorist about the event. We checked out the bike racks at Terraset were impressed to see 92 bikes. Way to go Terraset!
