Celebrate Bike to School Day!

Join children and adults around the country to celebrate the benefits of bicycling on Wednesday, May 6, 2020, with Michigan’s Bike to School Day (B2SD). National Bike to School Day builds on the popularity and success of International Walk to School Day (links to new window) , an event celebrated around the world since 1997.

Just last year, there were 254 school events that took part in Michigan alone.

Both Walk to School Day and Bike to School Day are great ways to bring community leaders, parent, students and other stakeholders together to build awareness for communities to be more walkable and bikeable. Every school or community can engage in a wide range of activities, such as recognizing local champions or groups.

After you register, download the Bike to School Day Toolkit (zip file) to start planning your event. The toolkit includes:

  • How to Plan a B2SD Event
  • How to Plan a B2SD Event in 7 Days
  • Flyer
  • Parent Invite
  • Parent Permission Slip
  • Social Media Posts
  • Invitation to Legislators
  • Representative & Senator Info
  • FAQ’s
  • Photo Release Form

All schools who register for Bike to School Day will automatically be registered for All Children Exercise Simultaneously (ACES) Day (links to new window) . Bike to School Day can count as your ACES Day activity!
