National Bike to School Day

What are the Benefits?

Participating in Bike to School Day events brings the school community together to celebrate students who ride their bikes or scooters to school. Not only do students get some extra exercise, but it’s also a great way to encourage everyone to join together and help make a difference in reducing school traffic and improving air quality.

On the second Wednesday in May, students across Solano County strap on their helmets, hop on their bikes and pedal to school on National Bike to School Day, a part of National Bike Month in May. The Solano Safe Routes to School program sponsored the first event in 2013 and participation continues to grow. In 2018, 25 schools from all 7 school districts in all 7 cities in the county participated.
