Alameda County Safe Routes to Schools

Bike to School Day is BACK!

Celebrate Bike to School Day on Thursday, May 16! This annual event is a great opportunity for families and students to try bicycling or rolling to school for the first time or to renew a commitment to healthy and safe travel to school. Remember, this event is not just for bikes! All active modes – including scooters, skateboards, roller-skates, and yes, walking – are encouraged. Registered schools receive free resources to help encourage and celebrate safe and active travel. Learn more about back to school day by checking out the Bike to School Day webpage or by reaching out to your site coordinator!
