Countdown to Bike to School Day 2020!

btsd-logo

At its core, Bike to School Day is about community, safety and health. Right now our communities need us to focus on health in a different way.

This year, due to the coronavirus outbreak, coming together is not advised and social distancing is vital. We have made the decision to reschedule Bike to School Day on Walk to School Day, October 7. Please update your calendars. Depending on your community’s situation, we hope individual families will get outside for a walk or bike ride when possible.

We will share more details soon and look forward to celebrating the benefits of active school commuting and the importance of safety with all of you this coming fall.

Michigan K-8 students are invited to get creative by participating in our Poster Contest brought to you by Farm Bureau Insurance. Students are encouraged to get excited about being active and interpret this year’s theme: Bike to the Beat!
