Bike to School
It’s a good time to bike to school!
BVSD Safe Routes is working to make cycling to school a way of life through education, encouragement and partnerships. In fact, our aim for the BVSD school community is to elevate bicycling (walking too!) to a primary means of transportation.
The joy of cycling goes on and on. Consider the fresh feeling of air on your face, the chance to get a little exercise, playing your part to reduce greenhouse gas pollution, or simply taking a break from the family car.
As a form of active transportation, biking to school helps us meet the daily requirements of physical activity which in turn is linked to learning and academic performance.
