Walking and Biking to School Safely
May 11-17th 2013
Bicyclists from the across the United States will join together to celebrate National Bike to School Day. Bike to School events work to create safer routes for bicycling and walking, and emphasize the importance of a range of issues such as increasing physical activity among children, cyclist and pedestrian safety, traffic congestion, concern for the environment and building connections between families, schools and the broader community.
Local schools already signed up for biking events in May include Sparks Middle, Incline Middle, Clayton Middle, Cold Springs Middl, Depaoli Middle, Mendive Middle, and Katherine Dunn Elementary School. Students are gathering before, during, and after school hours to hear bike safety tips and then ride together to school or local hot spots.
