San Francisco’s 2017 Bike & Roll to School Week is April 17-21. Sign up your school before April 1!
The annual celebration of fun, healthy ways to arrive at schools across our city is coming up, so it’s time to see how and where to get involved. Bike & Roll to School Week welcomes anyone and everyone with wheels! It’s time to get out your bicycles, skateboards, wheelchairs, rollerskates and strollers. Any San Francisco school, from pre-k to high school, is invited to participate in the fun. Last year over 80 schools and thousands of children were a part of Bike & Roll to School Week. Don’t miss out.
This is a great opportunity to try biking to school, if you haven’t done it before. Everyone from students, to teachers and even baby siblings are invited to join in. Not quite sure how to ride, or aren’t that confident? Don’t let that hold you back. There will be a series of free Family Biking Workshops, hosted by Safe Routes to School, at playgrounds around you. These workshops will be from 11:00 am – 2:00 pm, at the locations listed below.
