Gear Up for Bike to School Day

May 11 is Bike to School Day, an annual event that coincides with Bike to Work Day and supports and encourages pedal-powered commutes to schools throughout our communities. Each year, Bike to School Day and other events help build bicycle awareness that lasts far beyond May, National Bike Month.

Throughout May, the nonprofit organization Bike East Bay will help local schools host Kids’ Bike Rodeos at no cost. Bike East Bay’s team of youth cycling instructors are available to lead fun-filled bike rodeos at elementary schools, festivals, street fairs, and other events. Bike Rodeos are for youngsters in grades kindergarten through sixth, and include a mock city course, bike instruction and skill-building exercises.

Bikes and helmets are provided, or children may bring their own. For questions or to schedule an event, contact Bike East Bay’s Events Manager Dave Mann at Dave.Mann@BikeEastBay.org.
