Schools Shout Out Series! Pt 1: Elementary schools riding with us in May

That time of year is approaching: Bike Month is almost upon us! This year, I'm anticipating nearly 35 schools to sign-up for our Bike to School Month activities. Our School Shout Out Series will highlight different schools, volunteers and school-based events around the region that take an extra step in getting kids on their bikes throughout the month of May.

"But Elliott," you're saying, "what do you mean 'Bike to School Month?!' It's still mid-March!" Ah, and how astute an observation that is! This first installment of the series is going to draw your attention to the schools that signed up early for May's events. This is a group of schools that deserves a bit of special attention, before Bike to School Month even kicks off, for their dedication to their student's physical and mental health!
