Winter Safe Routes

Winter Walk and Bike Preparation

Don’t let the cold weather keep you inside all season! Time spent being active outside can boost mood and mental health and keep kids focused on learning better. With some simple preparation, your children can still be active and stay safe and warm during our winter months.

  • Wear a raincoat or poncho, and/or carry an umbrella.
  • Carry a plastic bag to store wet gear during the day.
  • Wear gloves and waterproof shoes. Carry (or store at school) extra shoes and socks to change into.
  • Find an under-cover area to park your bike if possible. If not, bring a plastic bag to cover the seat. We also have bike seat covers if any parent groups would like to provide some at the school for children riding bikes this winter.
  • Wear reflective gear and/or bright colors and use a light on your bicycle.
  • Only walk or bike in the rain if you’re comfortable, as roads are slick and visibility may be reduced. Always remember to stop at the curb or edge of the street, look in all directions before crossing and keep looking for traffic until you have finished crossing.
