Bike to School Day
In celebration of National Bike to School Day, on May 9, a small group gathered near the Prado Entrance in northwest Coral Gables and rode their bicycles through the residential streets and a piece of the future Gables Greenways to George Washington Carver Elementary School and International Children's School.
The first-ever National Bike to School Day took place on May 9, 2012, in coordination with the League of American Bicyclists’ National Bike Month. Almost 1,000 local events in 49 states and the District of Columbia joined together to encourage children to safely bicycle or walk to school.
The event builds on the popularity of Walk to School Day, which is celebrated across the country – and the world – each October. Many communities and schools have been holding spring walk and bicycle to school events for years. National Bike to School Day provides an opportunity for schools across the country to join together to celebrate and to build off of the energy of National Bike Month.
If your family rides their bikes to school regularly or ocasssionally, please share your story with us as we reach out to our elected officials at the City of Coral Gables to build safer streets for children to ride: firstname.lastname@example.org.
