FCPS: Bike to School Day on Wednesday, May 8

FCPS Students to Participate in Bike to School Day on Wednesday, May 8
Fairfax County Public Schools will participate in Bike to School Day on Wednesday, May 8, to promote physical activity and reduce traffic congestion and pollution near schools. May is National Bike Month. Biking helps us feel energized, engage with our neighbors, and reduce our carbon footprint. Not only does biking to school help foster lifelong healthy habits, but it can also encourage active transportation in the early-life stage. Starting the school day with a bike ride, walk, or roll will ensure that students are awake and ready to learn.

Students and employees are encouraged to bike or walk to school and work where safe to do so on May 8. Parents are encouraged to accompany their children to school, and to work with their school and PTA or PTO to assemble bike trains or walking groups for the event.

That would be a hell of a bike ride for a 14 year old from Fox Mill to Oakton High School.

Yeah, I’ll bike my fat ass to work. I only live in PG county up by the D C line. Nobody got no bikes up in here anyway.

They really need to get a grip on reality.
Some people want their children to get to school alive. That's OK!!!!! Being alive is good. Nothing to feel guilty about.

No way in hell I'm letting my kids bike on these over crowded roads at 7am in the morning.

Hell there's no way I would even bike on the ANY of the Fairfax County roads.

It's time to banned bicycling on Fairfax county roads over 25 mph. The over development and traffic in Fairfax County has made bicycling far to dangerous. It's a public safety issue.

Each year about 100 children are killed and 254,000 are injured as a result of bicycle-related accidents. Keeping a bike in the home increases your child's odds of dying by a factor of nearly four times greater than a gun in the home.

It's sad but the county has become way too overcrowded to allow bicycling. Except for private paved paths or parks.

I don't who the county thinks they are fooling with those "bike lanes." Those are death lanes.

With the increased traffic I'm sure we will see at least 10 bicycling accidents and deaths this year in the county.

I hate when bikes are on the road when there’s a paved path 10ft away.

Bike-to-school and/or walk-to-school efforts cannot be honestly appreciated unless on those days they eliminate school bus service and for that matter, parent kiss-and-ride service.

If you’re going to do something, do it right or don’t do it at all.

If the bleeding-hearts REALLY wanted to do something, they’d eliminate school buses altogether and organize walking parties with all the kids that would otherwise be on the bus. The patrols could then REALLY do something.

But that will never happen because they don’t care THAT much. They just like to sound like they do.

this REVIVAL is not about child health, freedom

in fx co they'd put bars on the bus window and elecgtric fences if the supreme court wouldn't protest them. they'd build helicopter landing pads for each child for all those helicopter parents.

MARK MY WORD - THIS INITIATIVE is about fx co gov given asians money to build bike paths and asians selling bicycles. it's NOT ABOUT THE KIDS!
