Pedaling to school

Ordway Elementary did something pretty amazing around this time last year. Through the leadership of teacher Sean Megy, the school had 300 out of its 400 students bike to school on National Bike to Work Day.

That’s 75 percent of the student body.

This year, Megy would like to hit the 100 percent mark. He knows that’s unlikely, but by aiming high he thinks Ordway may top last year’s turnout.

I plan to check in and see how the school’s effort goes this Friday.

In other Bike to Work initiatives, Squeaky Wheels is hoping to get more than 200 cyclists on the 7:05 a.m. ferry to Seattle on Friday. Last year, they nearly reached 160, so 200 is well within reach, said Squeaky Wheeler Dana Berg.
