Wednesday, May 9 marks the first ever National Bike to School Day.
Beginning at 7:30 am, DCPS students are invited to make their way to Lincoln Park, where they will receive a medallion from the National Center for Safe Routes to School and stickers from DDOT. Beginning at 7:45, students will then be asked to join a bicycle train that will depart from the park and travel to schools across the Hill. The trains will leave every 15 minutes, beginning at 7:45 am and continuing through 8:15 am.
Schools in DC with the most participation will receive the ‘Golden Bicycle’ from DDOT to display at their school!
Is Lincoln Park out of the way? Bike to school anyway! But make sure your school is registered and recruit a volunteer to count riders.
