Save the Date: May 7 is Bike to School Day

Bikes at The Bike Lane at Reston Town CenterOn Wednesday, May 7, all eight of Reston’s elementary schools will participate in National Bike to School Day.

Each school is running its own celebration event, and all eight are competing as a group with the eight elementary schools in Vienna to see who can get the most cyclists riding to school that day.

National Bike to School Day is a spinoff of Walk to School Day, which happens in October, says the National Center for Safe Routes the School, which sponsors both.

The first National Bike to School Day took place on May 9, 2012, in coordination with the League of American Bicyclists’ National Bike Month. Almost 1,000 local events in 49 states and the District of Columbia joined together to encourage children to safely bicycle or walk to school. Last year, more than 1,700 schools in all 50 states plus the District of Columbia participated.
