Fort Collins & Poudre Schools Celebrate Bike To School Day Wednesday

Bike To School DayCity of Fort CollinsWhen I was a kid I rode my bike all the time, but I couldn’t ride it to school. It was too far. I was a 1-hour bus ride from town.   The City of Fort Collins & the Poudre School District are encouraging students to ride their bikes to school tomorrow to celebrate Bike to School Day!

On Wednesday, May 9th, many local schools will encourage kids to bike safely to school.

According to a press release from the City of Fort Collins:

National Bike to School Day provides an opportunity for schools across the nation to join together to celebrate active transportation to schools and the benefits of active transportation for children’s health, academic achievement and the environment.

Several local schools will celebrate National Bike to School Day. Participating schools will vie for ten free bike racks from the National Center for Safe Routes to School in partnership with Saris Cycling Group.

This effort is part of the City’s goal of teaching schoolchildren  about how to safely bike/walk to school and to get at least 40% of local K-12 schoolchildren walking or biking regularly to school.
