Bike To School Day Next Wednesday
So make the appropriate arrangements because next Wednesday, May 8 is National Bike to School Day. I haven't heard anything specific that's happening locally to mark the date but I'm sure some area schools are doing something.
If not, oh well, take it upon yourself to get your kids to school via bike that day. Heck, ride with them. The exercise and time spent with the kids can't hurt.
Let me know if your child's school has something organized please.

SRTC was formed to address the county's transportation planning needs. It provides coordination in planning between the public, cities, small towns, the county, the state, transit providers, and tribes.
SRTC offers services including transportation monitoring, transportation modeling, census information analysis, travel demand forecasting, historical traffic count analysis, geographic information systems, and trip generation rates.
