Bike to School Day a Big Hit!

COAST celebrated National Bike to School Day on May 7th with many South Coast schools, and saw thousands of students biking, walking or using other sustainable modes of transportation to get to school!  As an incentive for high student participation, COAST raffled off four new bikes (donated by Yardi Systems) and helmets to the four schools with the highest participation rates.  Read our full Bike to School Day Recap Report for all the details, including the four lucky student bike winners.  Here are a few photos of some of the many happy bike riders on National Bike to School Day:
