Children across Marin County strapped on their helmets and laced up their walking shoes to participate in the 10th annual International Walk to School Day. Some 45 schools created events for the occasion, hoisting colorful signs and banners as they traveled down streets proclaiming: Bike and be Polite; Take A Green Way; Get out of the Metal and Onto the Pedal; Wheeling to School is so Cool; and Fill up the Bike Racks, not the Gas Tanks. Each student that participated received a color patch from Safe Routes to Schools and the middle and high schools received Z-bars and Fruit Twists donated by Clif Bars.
