I just learned today (Tuesday, May 8) that Wednesday, May 9 has been designated for the first time as National Bike to School Day. It?s too late this year, but maybe next year our local schools will designate this day to encourage their students to ride their bikes to school, especially since we call ourselves ?The Endurance Capital of the World.? Even if it is too late this year to participate in the Bike to School Day, this month would be a great opportunity to educate our youth about how fun it is to ride, the benefits of cycling, bike safety, etc. I?m not even sure if our schools have an area for students to lock up their bikes if they do choose to ride to school. College campuses provide an abundance of places to lock up bikes and as a result the campuses are full of young adults riding their bikes as a mode of transportation. May 14-18 is National Bike to Work Week. May is National Bike Month. Get out and ride! Teresa Kenworthy, Auburn
