Students at Bridgewater-Raritan High School in New Jersey are protesting after the principal refused to accept a new bike rack as a gift from the school's environmental club.
"'Actually, they said no on Earth Day,' remarked Katherine Dransfield, a senior who has tried, with a group of other students, to start a bike club. 'Essentially what they told us was that they didn't want to promote biking as a way to get to school.'"
"Offended by the snub, students promptly began planning a response. Yesterday, more than 50 students rode their bikes to school, commuting in pairs and groups. After studying up on state biking laws -- and carrying copies with them -- the students legally tethered their bikes in conspicuous clusters around lamp posts, trees and other poles dotting the circular drive in front of the school."
