As the State’s Safe Routes to School Coordinator, I ask for your help spreading the word for this great event – it is fun and healthy. Consider joining a neighborhood school in supporting students bicycling and walking to school.

Also, don’t forget that Bike to Work Day is just around the corner on May 15 and coincides nicely with Transit Week. If you can participate in any or all of these initiatives, it is a great example to the next generation.
