Every Day in May - Day 8

It's National Bike to School Day!  The weather held off and we had an awesome 34 bikes in the racks this morning.  Kids walked, rode, and ran (the girls running club) to school.  Our local bike cops came as did the director of recreation for our community, our Fairfax Advocates for Better Biking chair, and one of our bike/pedestrian engineer/planners for the county.  Most of us rode to get there.  What an amazing turnout.

Kristin's family arrives. They bike from the next town almost every day.

The bike train led by Aric Line approaches

A much better use of the Kiss N Ride!

We love our bike cops!

and one of the mom organizers

A sweet sight, indeed!

The rack on the far side of the school got some action, too!

Vanessa, one of our County bike/pedestrian planners, drove to my house
and then rode with me along the path to the school.
