Bike & Walk to School Day - Wednesday, May 10

Why Walk or Bike? It’s fun! Remember the thrill of riding a bike for the first time or walking to school that first day?

There’s a feeling of joy and independence —a sense of adventure—that doesn’t fade. When walking or biking, parents and children get to appreciate things they don’t notice while driving—listening to the sounds of the neighborhood, seeing friends and neighbors and feeling connected with their community. Parents, children and friends can enjoy one another’s company without the usual distractions.

Join us on May 10th and consider biking and walking to school. Most of all, it's fun! Village public safety providers will be doing their part to promote this day and make it safe for all who participate. Learn more about the day at the Walk & Bike to School website.
