Mark your calendars- the National Center for Safe Routes to School, in partnership with the League of American Bicyclists, is pleased to announce the first-ever National Bike to School Day on May 9, 2012!
The inaugural National Bike to School Day will be the first opportunity for communities across the country to join together to bicycle to school on the same day. The event builds on National Bike Month, held each May, as well as the popularity of Walk to School Day every October.
Is your child’s school doing anything to mark the day? If they are, go online to www.walkbiketoschool.org to register your event. And if they’re not, also go to the site to get ideas for possible events. Registering a Bike to School Day event provides organizers access to a variety of downloadable materials, including stickers, certificates, badges and classroom activities and provides the opportunity to win a bike rack.
