Bike to School
May is Bike to School Month!
May is National Bike Month, a time for people of all ages across the country to engage in active transportation through cycling. In addition to being enjoyable, bicycling can lead to lifelong healthy habits and kids arrive at school ready to learn! During Bike to School month, and throughout the year, we encourage all students to begin their school day with a safe and active commute.
Cascade Bicycle Club hosts friendly statewide Bike to School competitions for elementary, middle and high school students who can track their bike riding during May and earn prizes along the way.

Bike to School Day is Wednesday, May 4, 2016!
Why Bike to School?
Biking helps us reduce our carbon footprint, engage with our neighbors and feel energized. We want to foster life-long healthy habits and normalize cycling early in the life stage. Starting the school day with a bike ride will ensure that kids are awake and ready to learn!
