May 6, 2015: Bike to School Day

It’s never too early to start planning for Bike to School Day. You may start registering your events on starting February 11. The website is also a great place to find ideas for your event. Bike to School Day is a great time to host a bike rodeo to teach students safe bicycling skills, or to try out a bike train. Visit the Bike to School Day page for more ideas, downloadable flyers and a list of helpful links!
