MarshallElemenatryBikesLots of kids rode to school and participated in a huge bike rodeo this week!

We switched things up this year which has made it a bit more difficult for us to record how many kids rode to school throughout the week and on Bike to School Day, but we know we had a bunch of kids on bikes! At least 180 kids attended a bike rodeo at Fort Tuthill on Tuesday, (Safe Kids also hosted another one last week that was similarly well attended), and we did some rough counting at several schools around town and estimated at least 400 kids rode their bikes to school on Bike to School Day.

Thanks to all of the teachers who participated in the Classroom Challenge this year! We’ll tally the results and award prizes early next week!
