Description

Let the bike bells ring! The National Center for Safe Routes to School announces National Bike to School Day registration is now open. Nearly 950 schools across the country participated in the inaugural national event in 2012. As excitement about the event builds, participation is expected to increase for the 2013 celebration on Wednesday, May 8. Schools, community members and parents can register a Bike to School Day event now at www.walkbiketoschool.org.

Bike to School Day is a national event that gives communities across the country the opportunity to join together in bicycling to school on the same day. The event, an exciting celebration for both those new to the experience and those who have been two-wheeling to school for years, is part of the movement for year-round safe routes to school, and encourages bicycling to school as a healthy way for kids and families to make their school commute. Cost: Free
