I took a baseline count on Tuesday, which was another sunny day. There were 5 bikes in the school rack, out of 552 enrolled students.
Today, on Bicycle to School Day, 37 kids rode their bicycles to school. I handed out all my clif bars, all of my reflective cuff bands, and all but 4 of my water bottles.
