National Bike to School Day to be Celebrated in Port Townsend on May 8th




The first-ever national Bike to School Day took place last year, in coordination with League of American Bicyclists' National Bike Month. Almost 1,000 local school events in 49 states and the District of Columbia (including all schools in Port Townsend) registered on the events page at the National Center for Safe Routes to School website to encourage parents and children to bicycle or walk to school.



National Bike to School Day will be held on Wednesday, May 8, 2013www.walkbiketoschool.org


All parents of grade-school aged students are encouraged to bicycle (or walk) with their children to and from school on Bike to School Day. Middle-school aged students more often walk or bike to school on their own or with friends and neighbors. Port Townsend High school students have participated in the national Bike to School Day in large numbers, turning their school courtyard into a bike corral.
