Fuel Free Fridays

CHM@L launched Fuel Free Fridays to encourage families to walk, bike, stroll, take Metro, or carpool to school every Friday. Please participate! Fuel Free Fridays is great way to start your day by getting some exercise and helping the environment by reducing the amount of air pollutants emitted by automobiles!

A bike train departs at Lincoln Park at 8:15 a.m. every Friday. We also encourage families to “commute with neighbors” by forming walking school buses or bicycle-trains. We partnered with local bicycle shop The Daily Rider, who participates in our Lincoln Park bicycle-train.

Fuel Free Fridays was featured in another local bicycle shop’s blog and students from CHM@L were also featured in the Washington Post Kids Post section on biking to school! http://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/kidspost/in-washington-more-kids-head-to-school-by-bike/2013/10/03/bd39f71a-260f-11e3-b3e9-d97fb087acd6_story.html
