Walk and Bike to School Days: Communities across the country use International Walk to School Day and National Bike to School Day to give visibility to the importance of safer and improved streets, healthier habits, and less traffic — one community at a time.
The first National Walk to School Day – called Walk Our Children to School Day – was held in 1997. Since then, it’s come a long way. In May 2012, the first-ever National Bike to School Day was celebrated across the USA. Join families, schools and communities as they walk and bicycle to school for these events each year.
