Bike Falmouth's goal is to make biking a way of life for the people of Falmouth, Massachusetts, starting with the students at the East Falmouth School, Morse Pond, and the Lawrence School. That means we need to win over the hearts and minds of kids. We put a lot of effort into trying to make biking cool and developing incentive programs that connect with kids. Let's ride.
The end of the school year means the Morse Pond Bike-to-School Challenge had to come to an end. From March 1 until June 20 I kept track of every student who rode their bike to school. By early May we had a core group of five to ten kids who were riding almost everyday. The top seven students rode a total of 1252 miles, which is approximately the distance between Cape Cod and Colorado. Below are the final statistics for those top students (for privacy I am only using their initials). Well done!
