Reasons to Walk or Bike Your Child to School

IT’S FUN

Do you remember biking or walking to school when you were a kid? It’s energizing.

IT’S GREEN

Bikes and feet cool the Earth.

DRIVE LESS, STRESS LESS

Avoid waiting in long school drop-off and pick-up car lines.  Ditch the car, and enjoy the many benefits of green travel.

UNFORGETTABLE MEMORIES

Your child will never forget your time together walking or biking to school.

GET SOME FRESH AIR

Unstrap your child and make walking and biking to school a fresh air adventure.

BRAIN POWER

Students who bike or use their feet to get school arrive more alert and ready to learn with a clear mind.

SAVE MONEY

Green travel choices equal a greener bank account for your family.

PEDDLE FOR EXERCISE

Looking for ways to integrate physical fitness into your child’s daily life?  Teach them the lifelong lesson of using their bike or feet to get places.  Cycling is one of the best forms of exercise.

BREEDS INDEPENDENCE

Mom is not a taxi driver. Teach your child the safe route to school from your home and watch them go!

CONNECT WITH NEIGHBORS

Walking and talking with others on the way to school bonds communities and friendships for life.
