This May, we’re not just taking a day to Bike to School — we’re celebrating a whole week of how bikes rule at school! Why a full week? Each school community can choose its own best day and way to celebrate, while promoting biking and rolling all week. Whether you’re trying to get to school in the morning, get home at the end of the day or hang out with family and friends riding on local trails, biking is a fun, safe and sustainable transportation option for many local families.
We need your help to organize “Bikes Rule at School” events at your school and in your community! Every volunteer organizer will receive an “Organizer Toolkit” and we’re working on a few fun prizes for participating schools and families. Don’t feel like you can organize an event? You can still sign up to help out with another event or just to learn more about “Bikes Rule at School” news this spring. Please sign up your school below for more information!

About National Bike to School Day
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.
