More Than 50 Schools Participate in Bike to School Day in San Mateo County

By Bay City News Service:

Students in more than 50 San Mateo County schools strapped on their helmets this morning and pedaled their way to school as part of National Bike to School Day.

More than 20,000 students were expected to either bike or walk to school Wednesday morning, according to the San Mateo County Office of Education.

At most campuses, Wednesday's effort began an hour before the start of school, with students, parents and community leaders biking and walking from various pre-planned meeting locations throughout San Mateo County, according to Daina Lujan, Safe Routes to School coordinator for the county Office of Education.

"National Bike to School Day is a great way to get kids, families and community members excited about getting exercise, improving air quality and reducing traffic," Lujan said. "It is exciting to be part of this growing effort."
