Students at Clear Lake will participate in the National Walk and Bike to School Day–also known as the Walk and Roll to School event–tomorrow, May 15th. Schools, cities, volunteer groups, public health and law enforcement agencies and parents alike participate in Bike to School Day events to celebrate the benefits of choosing student-powered transportation.
National Bike to School Day provides an opportunity for communities across the country to join together to celebrate safe, active transportation and, where needed, to bring attention to necessary changes so more people can safely bicycle to more places. Participation in the annual event grows every year and as of today, over 2,500 schools in 49 states have registered events on the official Bike to School Day website, walkbiketoschool.org.
“Bicycling is a wonderful way to exercise, have fun and can be a means for some students to get to school,” said U.S. Secretary of Transportation Elaine L. Chao. “National Bike to School Day is an opportunity for communities to highlight the many benefits of bicycling and promote bicycle safety for Americans of all ages.”
A special thank you to Pat McGillivray’s son, Kelley, for putting together this fun video from last year’s event for us to share with our students and families!
