On Tuesday, June 17, Tamaques Elementary School in Westfield held its first Bike to School Day as a treat for the 5th Grade Class. The event was organized by the Tamaques Green Team to promote a fun, green alternative to driving to school. Jays Cycle Shop in Westfield donated bells and water bottles as raffle prizes for the kids and the Westfield Police and crossing guards ensured a safe ride.
Donna Pizzi and Kirti Malik, Green Team Chairs commented on the great turnout and the kids' enthusiasm.
“Hopefully, we’ll see more bikes and less cars on the road in the future,” Malik remarked.
