Join in the fun Wednesday, May 10, for Bike to School Day!

Why walk or bike?

  • Physical activity before school helps children arrive focused and ready to learn. 
  • Students who walk and bike frequently when they are young are more likely to continue these activities into adulthood.
  • When walking or biking, parents and children get an opportunity to bond and appreciate things they don't notice while driving - listening to the sounds of the neighborhood, seeing friends and neighbors and feeling connected with their community.
  • Fewer cars on the road means less traffic and congestion and cleaner air.

Helmets should be worn at all times when riding a bike. Bicyclists should ride safely by following the rules of the road and obeying traffic laws. Young children should be accompanied by an adult. Bikes must be walked across streets manned by school crossing guards.
