Spread the biking love! Get your school involved with Bike to School Day this spring

The first-ever National Bike to School Day took place on May 9, 2012, in coordination with the League of American Bicyclists’ National Bike Month. Almost 1,000 local events in 49 states and the District of Columbia joined together to encourage children to safely bicycle or walk to school.

The event builds on the popularity of Walk to School Day, which is celebrated across the country – and the world – each October. Many communities and schools have been holding spring walk and bicycle to school events for years. National Bike to School Day provides an opportunity for schools across the country to join together to celebrate and to build off of the energy of National Bike Month.

The Baltimore Family Bike Party and Bikemore are working to organize local schools and parents to participate in a Bike to School Day (or even a Bike to School week – we’re flexible on the dates!) for the first time in Baltimore this year. If you are interested in participating in any way, big or small, please get in touch and let us know how we can get you involved!
