Every Day is a great day to Walk and Bike to School!
What a fantastic Bike to School Day! Congratulations to Elk Meadows Elementary School in Bend Oregon for their best walk or bike event to date! Stay tuned for pictures. What a great way to jump start their grade 4 and 5 bike safety program.
What did you and your school do to celebrate?

A successful Safe Routes to School Program is a partnership between city and county agencies, schools, community organizations, neighborhoods and schools that work together to create opportunities to make walking and biking to school and throughout the community fun, easy, safe and healthy for all students and their families. Schools and communities have the best chance of success when they combine expertise, resources and program elements that consider the "5 E's of Safe Routes to School": Encouragement, Education, Enforcement, Engineering and Evaluation.
