Why Bike/Walk/Roll to School?
Biking/Walking/Rolling helps us feel energized, engage with our neighbors and reduce our carbon footprint. Not only does biking to school help foster lifelong healthy habits, but it can also encourage active transportation in the early-life stage. Starting the school day with a bike ride, walk or roll will ensure that kids are awake and ready to learn!
