National Bike to School Day is Just One Week Away!

Over 1,700 events are already registered for the fourth annual celebration!

There’s just one week to go before National Bike to School Day on May 6th!  Registration has surpassed last year’s numbers at this time and new events continue to roll in. Over 1,700 events have been registered on www.walkbiketoschool.org. Take a look at the “Who’s Biking Map” to see who’s planning to ride to school in your community.

Biking and walking activities for the classroom

Bike to School Day events provide a wonderful opportunity to incorporate biking and walking themes into various school subjects. There are lots of fun ways to link biking and walking to learning.  Visit our website for creative ideas for your classroom.

Register your event to be entered to win bikes, helmets and a bike rack for your school

Does your school need bikes, helmets or a bike rack? Register your school’s Bike to School Day event at walkbiketoschool.org to be entered into drawings for Schwinn bikes and helmets and for a chance to win a Sportworks bike rack for your school!

For our drawing on Bike to School Day, May 6, the two most creative responses to the National Center’s Facebook question, “How could your school use ten bikes and twenty helmets?”, will be selected as the winners of the Bike to School Day drawing. Stay tuned to our Facebook page for more details on how to enter into next week’s contest.

Bike Month continues through May, there’s still time to get on board

If you’re not part of the excitement yet, it’s not too late.  National Bike Month lasts through May, and your Bike to School Day event can be any time during the month. Plan an event now and register at www.walkbiketoschool.org to get in on the action!

And if you’ve organized an event but haven’t yet registered it, please register now. One of our goals with National BTSD is to provide as accurate a record as possible of the biking and walking to school energy in the US.  Being able to show the strength of this movement will help all walking and biking programs to convince decision-makers that Safe Routes to School efforts should be supported.
