Get Ready to Pedal! Bike to School Day is May 6 

We’re sure that many area families are eager for everyday life to go back to normal. Going back to school is at the top of many lists, and something to look forward to is National Bike to School Day on Weds., May 6. BAPA is organizing local schools to participate in this event by encouraging children to bike to school that day and getting local schools involved in making it a special day.   

Riding your bike is a great way to be active and healthy, and that physical activity can also make it easier for kids to focus in school. Leaving the car at home alleviates traffic and improves air quality. And riding bikes is fun! 

All riders should follow safety rules when biking, including wearing helmets.  

Schools interested in participating in Bike to School Day are welcome to contact BAPA School Liaison Tina Jenkins Bell, 773-233-3100 or tbell@bapa.org, for information.
