Bike to School Day is an offshoot of Walk to School Day, says the event sponsor, National Safe Routes to School. The first-ever National Bike to School Day took place in May of 2012 with 950 events in 49 states. In 2014, more than 2,200 schools participated in National Bike to School Day on May 7.

The events are held to encourage children to help the environment, take part in healthy habits and promote safety by getting to school using foot and pedal power.

Local schools each have a Bike to School Day coordinator and special events planned. To see how to get involved at your school, see this list on Bike to School Day’s website.
