Walking and biking does not necessarily mean door to door, or even everyday. Every block and each day helps reduce traffic and polution while teaching kids the value and fun of non-motorized transportation.

Thanks for the motivation

Most children simply do not get enough exercise. Only 13% of children walk or bike to school today (compared to 66% in 1970). Worse, approximately only 10% of children ages 6-10 get the recommended 60 minutes of activity a day.

Walking and biking to school may be the easiest way to reverse these trends. And why not? Kids love walking and riding bikes to school. They have fun, get to hang out with their friends and get to school ready to learn. It’s a great way to start their day. Plus it:

  • Builds confidence
  • Creates safer communities
  • Develops healthier, more sustainable environments
  • Helps children arrive energized and ready to start their day in class
  • Reduces traffic and congestion around schools
  • Teaches life skills: safe habits, good decision making and responsibility
  • Helps children develop deeper community awareness

When kids learn how to safely and responsibly walk and bike to school, they also learn life lessons that not only help them be better members of the community, but better stewards of the future.
