Walking or biking to school is a great way to promote a healthy, active lifestyle among students. Students learn responsibility, good decision making and community awareness. And remember, more kids walking or biking to school, means fewer cars, less pollution and safer, cleaner neighborhoods!
Celebrate Bike Month with a Bike to School Day!
Below is a week of ideas build enthusiasm. Be sure to practice your routes to school or to a fun destination in your neighborhood.
And remember, walking or biking to school does not necessarily mean door-to-door or even everyday. Take the 3 Block Challenge and park and walk at least 3 blocks to school at least once every week. Each day and every block you don’t drive makes a big difference. So whether you walk to school once a month, once a week or every day, know you are doing your part to create a healthier, safer community.
