BROWN COUNTY - Brown County students learned the importance of physical activity Wednesday by biking to school.
It's all part of National Bike to School Day. More than 6,000 students from 13 different county schools biked to and from school alongside their friends and parents. Green Bay Mayor Jim Schmitt even got in on the action!
"The bikes are a lot nicer today, but i think it's great that these kids can bike with their friends. You know, they obey the rules and again... to start off your day with some exercise and fun exercise on top of it. So, it's a great day to bike to school day today and that's what we're doing," the mayor said.
Brown County students will also take part in National Walk to School Day this fall.
