For the 5th year, the Solano Safe Routes to School Program is asking students to spread the word about walking and biking safety for themselves and their friends and classmates. Students were provided safety tips for Walking and Biking and asked to illustrate these rules. Winning artwork will be selected and included in a 2020 Solano Safe Routes to School Calendar.
More information and winning artwork (when announced) can be found here.
Bike to School Day will be celebrated across Solano County by 28 schools on May 8th for National Bike to School Day.
“Biking is a great way for students to travel to school, get some exercise, and reduce traffic around their school,” said Fairfield Mayor Harry Price, who serves as STA board chair. “For our young adults, biking provides a sense of independence and reinforces the development of healthy, lifelong habits.”
