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 walkbiketoschool.org starting February 11.

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.
