No Cars Tomorrow - It's Walk, Bike, and Roll to School Day
Wednesday October 12 is National Walk, Bike, and Roll to School Day! Choosing to bike or walk to school helps us in so many ways:
It enables our kids to incorporate regular physical activity in to their daily routine
It helps our environment by reducing the amount of pollutants and greenhouse gasses emitted by cars
It reduces traffic congestion
It builds a sense of community as you develop walking and biking buddies and can chat with your neighbors when you're outside enjoying our lovely weather
It lowers costs for families, especially now with gas being so expensive
It encourages the development of better bike and walk infrastructure, which can increase home values and drive more business to our local shops and restaurants
If elected to City Council, I will make it a priority to improve the city's bike/walk infrastructure - read more about my goals of creating safe and user-friendly pedestrian and bike options for all ages.
Our family has always been a big biking family - here are some pictures from over the years of the many adventures we have taken via bike.
