Don’t forget: The deadline for registering your children’s schools for Bike & Roll to School Week celebrations is approaching.
April 16-20 is San Francisco’s Bike & Roll to School Week — the largest event of its kind in the whole country. Last year, a record-breaking 90 schools and 6,800 students, parents and teachers across San Francisco participated. Let’s break that record with 100 participating schools this year!
Who celebrates Bike & Roll to School Week? Everyone: preschoolers, elementary, middle and high school students, along with their parents, teachers and even principals. We encourage all forms of rolling: bikes, skateboards, scooters, skates, — even your tricycle or your little red wagon. The deadline to sign up is this Saturday, March 31, so don’t miss out!
Do you live too far away to bike to school? Hop off the bus at the meeting point or park the car and unload your bikes to join the bike train. For instance, Rosa Parks Elementary families bike to school together from the 16th Street BART station..
The San Francisco Bicycle Coalition organizes Bike & Roll to School week as a proud partner of San Francisco Safe Routes to School, a partnership of City agencies and community groups working together to make it safe, easy and fun to travel to and from school by bike, on foot, by public transit and in carpools.
