National Ride Your Bike to School Day
Thousands of children across the country will be strapping on helmets, kicking up kickstands, and putting their mettle to the pedal as they ride their bikes to school on Wednesday, May 8, in celebration of the second annual National Bike to School Day.
Schools, cities, bicycle groups, public health organizations and parents alike are organizing bike rides and bike trains to school to highlight and celebrate the benefits of choosing student-powered transportation to school.
More than 1300 groups nationally are participating in National Ride Your Bike to School Day, including the City of Milton.
Milton City Administator Jerry Schuetz says not only does riding your bike to school reduce traffic congestion, but it's also great for your health.
