The Second Annual National Bike to School Day is May 8, 2013.  Communities across the country will join together to bicycle to school on the same day and throughout the month. The event builds on the excitement surrounding National Bike Month, led by the League of American Bicyclists each May, as well as the popularity of Walk to School Day, coordinated by the National Center for Safe Routes to School every October and Georgia Walk and Bike to School Day in March.

Stayed tuned for Georgia-specific materials to make your Bike to School Day event a big hit and use the materials already on the site. Check some of them out here.  Schools and communities are encouraged to promote bicycle safety.

Schools and communities that register at www.walkbiketoschool.org will be entered into the Bike to School Day Bike Rack Giveaway! Each Wednesday leading up to the event a drawing will take place. Schools may win a bicycle rack!
