Bike to School Day 2019
May 8, 2019Free
Bike to School Day 2019 is Almost Here!
Spring is upon us, and that means National Bike to School Day is just around the corner. Register now for the May 8 event.
Thank you to all those who have registered for the 8th annual celebration. Hundreds of schools have signed up to participate. All communities are invited to join the movement that connects and inspires communities to foster safer and more friendly routes for biking and walking to school.
Bike to School Day is a great way to promote a broader message of safety and support for safe, active travel in general. By starting with children and the trip to school, communities become safe places for everyone to walk and bike.
- Communities rally around making safety improvements that benefit children.
- Safety measures aimed at protecting youth – such as controlling speed, having ample crosswalks, and improving walking and biking facilities on school routes – have broader effects that benefit the entire community.
- Experiencing these safety improvements around schools helps build public support for their use in other areas of the community.
