Walk and Roll to School

To celebrate International Walk to School Day yesterday, we kicked off our annual "Walk and Roll to School" incentive program.  Not only were the bike racks overflowing, but I only saw a mere handful of cars drive by.  The dropoff circle was empty.  Eerie, for a school of 850 kids.

It's heartening to know that people's habits are changing, at least locally -- it was nothing like this when we started at the school a mere 5 years ago.  Today, on a normal day, we are at about 50% self-propelled; yesterday it was more like 90%, to my eyes, which bodes well for the rest of the year!
