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.
Locally, Walk/Bike Frankfort will be sponsoring Second Street School's Bike to School Day. Of course, kids can bike to school anytime! We're just trying to inspire everyone to make that move. It's fun and great exercise for everyone. Plus, participants will be eligible to win a prize! Of course, students are encouraged to wear a helmet. Also, if you don't own a chain and lock, you'll be able to park your bike inside the school this day.
