On this crisp October morning, scores of Bedford students abandoned their school buses and traveled on their own steam.
The occasion? International Walk/Bike to School Day on Wednesday, October 4.
With the help of the Bedford Police and the town’s CERT volunteers in crossing intersections along the Narrow Gauge Rail Trail, a ‘Bike Train’ left Depot Park and made quick time to Lane School. Chaperoned by Principal Rob Ackerman and Assistant Principal Keith Kinney, the young riders were accompanied by several parents enjoying time with their children.

At Davis, walkers traversed the back parking lot at the Lutheran Church of the Savior and circled Cat Tail Corner on their way to school. Three parents rode bicycles that trailed ‘co-pilot’ cycles for their children. There was the usual complement of scooters and two-wheelers, with and without training wheels.
