To encourage more middle school students to ride their bikes to and from school, we are organizing monthly Bike to School Days for all Columbia Middle School students. On the first Friday of every month, students are encouraged to gather friends, family and neighbors to ride to school. They will be greated in the morning by PedNet volunteers set up at all 6 middle schools offering refreshments and prizes.
Our first two Bike to School Days in August and September had great turnouts and positive feedback. So far our prizes have been bike bells and sunglasses for the students who participate. For our November 7th Bike to School Day, we have a seasonal prize that will benefit those riding in the colder fall and winter temperatures. We look forward to seeing even more students buddled up and biking to school for our 3rd Bike to School Day on November 7th.
