National Bike to School Day, May 8

Bike to School Day is a day when communities come together to celebrate a child’s active and safe trip to school.

Bike to School events work to create safer routes for bicycling, and emphasize the importance of children getting physical activity, developing bicycling safety skills, and decreasing traffic congestion and air pollution around the school. The events also help to build connections between families, schools and the broader community.
