Last updated on Friday, April 20, 2012

(BEDFORD) - Bedford North Lawrence students will use peddle power to get to school today.

The BNL Bike Rally Kicks off at 7 a.m. Students are meeting in the parking lot of Tractor Supply on 16th Street and will depart at 7:15 a.m. for school.

Bedford Police Department officers will be posted along the way to give the bicyclists a clear path to school.

Motorist are asked not to pull into the path of the cyclists.

This is the fifth year for the rally, which began as a protest against spiking gas prices. Even though gas prices are still high, the focus of the rally has changed.

Proceeds from sponsorships and sales of T-shirts will be give to Glory Days Foundation, a cancer charity.

About 150 students participated last year.
