Bike to School Day

Every year, we join the entire San Francisco Bay Area region in celebrating Bike Month in May — with the biggest celebration happening on Bike to School Day! Bike to School Day is a great opportunity for families and students to try riding bikes to school for the first time or to renew a commitment to healthy and safe travel via bike.

In Alameda County, Bike to School Day is celebrated with Bike to Work Day on the second Thursday in May, but schools can choose other dates to celebrate. Registered schools receive free resources and training to help them encourage and celebrate safe bicycle travel.

Check out what schools are participating in Bike to School Day 2018!
