National Bike To School Day
May 4, 2017
Today is Bike to School Day, and tens of thousands of American children (hopefully more) are learning how rewarding and fun it can be to get to school on two wheels.
Walking and biking to school accounted for 50 percent of all school trips in 1969, compared to 13 percent today. Now it’s not even permitted in some places — parents in Collingswood, New Jersey, for instance, are fighting school administrators who banned elementary school students from biking to school.
