Walk Bike Challenge Week
During the week of June 13-17 students at Vienna area elementary schools took a combined 6473 trips to school by foot, bike, skateboard, and scooter. 1250 of those trips were by bicycle. That is 4 years in a row where Vienna students have exceeded 5000 trips to school during the Walk Bike Challenge Week and the second time in four years where over 6000 trips to school were taken.

Cunningham Park received the Challenge Cup at an awards ceremony June 17 before the Chillin On Church Street Party. The Cup is awarded to the school with the most improvement in participation over the prior year. Westbriar came in second making 3 years in a row with a top 2 finish.

Vienna Elementary will also be recognized for the fifth straight year with the Biking Cup which is awarded to the school with the highest level of participants that bike to school. Vienna ES had 232 students bike to school on Friday - over 50% of the students - which is as far as we know only the second time in the Commonwealth of Virginia that a school has had over 200 students bike to school.
