May is here and that means National Bike & Walk Month! The weather is getting warmer and we’re looking forward to more events and time outside. We’re especially looking forward to helping a few schools with their Bike & Walk to School Days.
May 15 and 16 – next week on Wednesday and Thursday — we’ll be out at Birch Elementary from 11-3:00 helping 4th and 5th graders learn how to bicycle the safe way. We’re going to need LOTS of help – so if you can stop by and donate an hour or two working with young bicyclists – we would REALLY appreciate it.
This past Wednesday, May 8th we had the priviledge of helping Reagan Elementary bike and walk to school. There were hundreds of alert happy kids and a few parents and teachers walking and at least 54 kids on bikes. What a great way for them to start the day getting lots of fresh air and exercise.
Why do we put so much energy into helping kids learn how to ride a bicycle or walk to school?
This video, “Freedom to Roam”, from Streetfilms says it best. It’s why we care.
Bring the family out to this great annual community FREE event this Saturday.
We’ll be there at the Idaho Center with fun kids safety activities.
Or maybe we’ll see you on one of the rides.
If you plan to participate in the charity ride – sign up by Thursday, May 2 using this online registration form
