Thousands of Alameda County Students Prepare to Participate in Bike to School Day 2023

The Alameda County Safe Routes to Schools (SR2S) Program is excited to announce that students from schools throughout Alameda County will participate in Bike to School Day on Thursday, May 11. Bike to School Day is one of several major SR2S events throughout the school year that encourages students to use shared and active transportation to get to school. It is also one of many events around the Bay Area during National Bike Month which includes Bike to Work Day on May 18.

After two years of celebrating virtually with pandemic-safe “Bike to the Moon Week” events, the Safe Routes Program is thrilled to bring back this in-person opportunity for students and families to try riding bikes for the first time or to renew their commitment to healthy and safe travel via bike.

Opportunities for in-person media or live coverage are dependent on schools’ visitor policies. Members of the media can find Bike to School Day updates on the Safe Routes Program’s Facebook and Twitter pages.
