The Ward Six participation in the 12th annual National Bike & Roll to School Day launched from Lincoln Park on Capitol Hill this morning. The event highlights the benefits of active transportation to school and promotes safe and accessible spaces for all active trips. The crowd of several hundred bikers – kids and parents – began assembling in the park at 7:30am. There were other celebrations in the city marking the day but this one in Ward 6 was the largest.
The event featured a host of local and national officials including Ward Six Councilmember Charles Allen. Mayor Bowser was scheduled to attend but was a no-show. The DC government’s television crew provided live coverage of the event anyway.
Allen singled out event organizers Suzanne Wells, President, Ward 6 Public Schools Parent Organization (center) and Sandra Moscoso, board member of the D.C. Open Government Coalition, School Without Walls HSA, and Ward 6 Public Schools Parent Organization (at left) as the “stalwarts who get things going every year.”
The event closed with a performance by the Eastern High School Blue and White Marching Band.
At 8:15am, the crowd split up and departed the Park for their respective schools. Here, the Payne School contingent – one of the largest – rolls out.
