You know what those kids rolling into to school parking lot in their parents' cars have yet to learn: riding your bike keeps you in shape, your wallet full of money, and the planet healthy.
Join other students this May in celebrating Bike Month!
Bike to School Day
If you are new to riding, try participating in Bike to School Day on Wednesday, May 8. The school with the most riders on Bike to School Day wins its very own bike-blender smoothie party!
Biking to school is easy and fun! Plan your route ahead of time if you've never done it before. You can organize a group of friends to ride to school together, hang up posters to spread the word and ask your school's PTA to supply you with prizes or snacks. See the Bike to School toolkit for other tips to get your momentum going. Most importantly, ride and have fun!
The Month-Long Challenge!
Once you have registered, you can log your miles on the Bike to School Challenge website. Ride to school at least five times during May, and you'll qualify for the competition. The more you ride, the higher you rank, and the higher your chances are of winning awesome prizes!!
Compare your ranking to other competitors, and see how your school measures up against others! You can even keep track of your teachers riding on the Commute Challenge website. The students (and schools) who rode most often by the end of May can win some sweet prizes!
In order to register;
Earn a Bike to School t-shirt:
You can only enter trips to and from school, not errands or personal trips taken throughout the day.
You must enter your miles in order to get credit for them! Don't do all that riding for nothing! You have until midnight on Wednesday to enter your miles for the previous week. No bike computer? No problem. Use this online tool to see how far you rode.
At the end of May there will be a drawing for prizes. Your name will be entered into the drawing each time you ride, so the more bike trips you take the better your chances are of winning!
Some other prizes you AND your school can earn include:
