Gloomy weather was no deterrent for the scores of students who walked, rode, or scooted to school on Wednesday morning for International Walk-Bike to School Day.
Healthy Bedford coordinator Carla Olson’s initial count included 26 independent bike riders at the John Glenn Middle School; 34 riders in the Bike Train chaperoned by Rob Ackerman and Keith Kinney from Depot Park to the Lane School; 8 walkers accompanying Selectman Margot Fleischman, Town Manager Sarah Stanton, and mom Chris Anderson (with Riley) on the trek from St. Paul’s to Lane School; and nearly 30 walkers, riders, and scooters headed to Davis School from the Lutheran Church of the Savior parking lot in the company of Jess Colby, Kristin Dowdy, and Ralph Hammond.
