First Ever National Bike to School Day - Pit Stop at Lincoln Park Wednesday, May 9 - 7:30 a.m.
The first National Bike to School day is on Wednesday. Ride to Lincoln Park, sign in, get a medallion from the National Safe Routes to School team, stickers from DDOT and join a bicycle train to your school. Trains leave at 7:45 a.m., 8:00 a.m. and 8:15 a.m. Get to school on time! School in DC with the most participation, will get to proudly display the 'Golden Bicycle' from DDOT at their school! Can't make it to Lincoln Park? Bike to school anyway - make sure your school is registered and recruit a volunteer to count riders. Don't forget to wear your school T-shirts!

The NATIONAL Safe Routes to Schools folks have selected this event as their 'highlighted' event and will be at Lincoln Park to document it (photos, film, etc) for their press releases.
Shortly after students arrive at school, members of Congress and leaders of bicycle advocacy organizations will hold a press conference to announce new survey data about Americans’ attitudes towards federal funding for biking and walking. The press conference will take place at 9:30 a.m. at 2nd and C St NE.
