California's first organized statewide Bike To School Day took place this last Thursday, April 24th, 2008. Students and student groups at 17 different campuses across the state actively encouraged students and staff to participate. At many campuses, additional events were put on to further amplify the day.
At Sonoma State University, we had free bike tune-ups, maintenance (including flat tire) tutorials, free ankle straps, patch kits, and Clif Bars, bike swag for sale, and a member of the Sonoma County Bicycle Coalition talking about current bicycle issues and events.
We had a huge turnout at our booths and our mechanics were swamped. There was also a noticeable increase in the number of bikes in the racks at school.

I just wanted to share this with you all.
