 National Bike to School day is May 7


The third annual National Bike to School day is May 7, 2014. The national event, promoted by the National Center for Safe Routes to School and the U.S. Department of Transportation, is part of an effort to create safe routes for students to bicycle to school and to encourage more children and families to turn to pedal power as a healthy way to commute to school.

More than 1,700 schools across the country participated in 2013. Learn how to host a Bike to School Day event or register your school’s event at the National Center for Safe Routes to School website. See also MCDOT's Safe Routes to School website.
