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 3, in Lincoln Park (East Capitol at 11th Street SE).
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, Payne Elementary and Miner Elementary Cheeleaders, Ward 6 Councilmember Charles Allen (D), Mayor Muriel Bowser (D), the District Department of Transportation (DDOT), DC Water’s Wendy the Water Drop; the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) First District Bike Patrol Trainees, National Park Service and friends from the National Center for Safe Routes to School.
You can make a chalk mural with your friends from Ward 6 and Ward 7 Schools!
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!
Register your school here.
Don’t worry! After all the fun, you’ll get to school ON TIME!
