It’s time for schools to get on a roll! The 11th annual National Bike & Roll to School Day is 7:30 a.m. to 8:15 a.m. Wednesday, May 4, in Lincoln Park (East Capitol at 11th Street SE).
Wear your school gear to show your pride and bring a book for the book swap.
The event features the Eastern High School Blue and White Marching Band. There will be speakers, tables and giveaways from community organizations, including the DC Public Library Book Bike, Ward 6 Councilmember Charles Allen (D), Mayor Muriel Bowser, the District Department of Transportation (DDOT), DC Water’s Wendy the Water Drop; the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) First District Bike Patrol, National Park Service and friends from the National Center for Safe Routes to School.
Whether addressing the need to make routes to school safer for active trips or encouraging children to be more active, the event can be powerful tools to inspire lasting change. Of course, they are also fun!
