It’s that time of year again, our favorite month: May is Bike Month! We’ve been busy planning two awesome, car-free rides, and have plans to celebrate Bike to Work Day with exciting announcements and the annual award Bike Friendly Business of the Year award. …
From late October to Thanksgiving break, we worked with Thompson Middle School to promote and inspire more biking and walking to school. Through daily encouragement and weekly raffles, over 25% of the student body participated. On Tuesday, Nov 25th, three grand prize winners were drawn from among the students who biked or walked the most during the challenge. Clockwise from top right: 5th grader Nathaniel Thompson received a $250 gift card to Ten Speed Spokes; Kaylon Samuels received a a $250 gift certificate to Newport Bicycle; and 8th grader Graeme Clougher, pictured with our own Director of Education Mark Chesterton, received a $250 gift card to Pedal Power in Middletown. The Bike and Walk to School Challenge was funded by a generous grant from the Safe Routes to School National Partnership. Celebrate kids moving in the morning!
