Let's Get Pumped—You Can Do a Bike to School Event!

Tuesday, February 26, 2013 - 1:00 pm EST

Bike to School Day is coming… are you feeling it!? Last year hundreds of schools participated in the first ever National Bike to School Day event. Students, parents, and safe routes organizers across the country took off the training wheels and figured out how to balance a two-wheeled event; turned out to be just as fun, media-friendly, and energizing as Walk to School Day!

If you’re hesitating to start a Bike to School event because you aren’t quite sure how to pull it off, this webinar is for you. 


  • Mark Wyatt, Executive Director of the Iowa Bicycle Coalition
  • Don Cross, Chief Engineering Tech/School Safety Coordinator, City of Phoenix, AZ
  • Christine Gilliard-Arthur, Physical Education Teacher,  Prince George’s County Schools, MD

Our three presenters will start by making the case for the many benefits children get when they bike with family and friends, and why promoting biking among children is worth the effort. Then hear some lessons learned from seasoned walk to school organizers who held their first bike to school events last year, and get a glimpse at online resources that can help you get started.

If you’re ready to get your bike on this year, join us for this webinar – we can do it together!
