Bike to School Day


Nashville's 5th Bike to School Day is May 8th, 2019.

Formerly Walk and Roll to School Day, we have simplified the name but continue to encourage students to roll to school under their own power however they can.

Check out a good bike route to your children's school, check that all of your families bikes work, (before the day!) and challenge everyone to ride to school that day! 

No safe route to school from your house? Drive somewhere that does have a safe route, and bike from there.

Do you have new ideas for how your school can celebrate the day? Email Robert Johnson and we will see if we can help.

School staff wishing to sign up - please complete this sign-up before Friday 19th April: sign-up survey and information form.
