One Response to “Bike School”

    Lawrenceville schools would benefit from a program like this. Three of the 4 elementary schools, the intermediate, middle and high schools are all within about 3 miles of each other. The main roads leading to them (206 and Princeton Pike) are pretty bike friendly — with bike lanes or wide lanes that would be safe for riders. But, you see very few kids riding to school and traffic around the middle school / high school is horrific!
