National Bike to School Day 2020! @ Schools Everywhere!
May 6 all-day

………………..

Join COAST, SBBIKE and Traffic Solutions as we support National Bike to School Day (NB2SD) on Wednesday, May 6th.  Thousands of schools across the country will participate with special activities and incentives encouraging students to bike, skate, scoot (or walk) to and from school, a benefit for their and the planet’s health.  NB2SD is just one of the local CycleMAYnia celebratory events spanning the month of May:  National Bike Month!  COAST reminds all motorists to slow down and watch for increased bike and pedestrian traffic on May 6th, and encourages parents to ride or walk to school with their children on NB2SD!

Participating schools can create festive greeting tables, and hand out donated prizes and healthy snacks to children who bike or roll to school.  We encourage parents to bike with their kids and keep it up after Bike to School Day!  Contact us if you would like to host an event at your school and we can help supply you with small prizes for the kids and provide tips for planning.

.

Organize a Bike Train!  A bike train is a great way to encourage biking to and from school that can involve multiple students from many neighborhood families.  COAST’s Safe Routes to School program encouraged schools to set up bike trains for Bike (and Walk) to School Day.  Several schools ran with the idea and have set up bike trains to school on a regular basis.  Our partners at SBBIKE captured those bike trains on video.  Click the right-hand image to watch and learn more!

Be sure to mark your calendars for May 6th and get out there and get moving!
