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.

Due to the Covid 19 pandemic, all Solano Bike Month events have been postponed.



Bike to School Day 2020 has been cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The Solano SR2S Program stays ready to support our schools when they return to their campus.

Check out our Safe Routes “at home” resources page for videos, ideas and activities to support biking in your neighborhood or on Solano County trails. Remember to maintain 6 foot physical distancing when exercising and on any trails.

Each May, students across Solano County strap on their helmets, hop on their bikes and pedal to school on National Bike to School Day, as part of National Bike Month. The Solano Safe Routes to School program sponsored the first event in 2013 and participation continues to grow. In 2019, 28 schools from all 7 school districts in all 7 cities in the county participated.

Thank you to all Solano County schools that participated in National Bike to School Day 2019!
