Children and parents throughout the state will be biking and walking to school as part of ‘National Bike to School Day’ on Wednesday.
The Indiana Safe Routes to School Partnership, which works to increase the number of children safely walking and biking to school throughout the state, and Health by Design, are encouraging schools and parents statewide to take part.
“Expect to see more students and adults walking and biking near schools,” said Allan Henderson, Health by Design’s Safe Routes to School program manager. ‘Bike to School Day’ is an opportunity to increase the visibility of bicycling, remind everyone to share the road and emphasize the benefits of healthy transportation options. We loving seeing entire communities – school staff, public officials, parent teacher organizations, law enforcement and community leaders – participate.”

While ‘National Bike to School’ day is a designated date each May, schools and communities are encouraged to organize walk and bike to school events throughout the year. Get tips on how to organize an event, here.
