 BVSD Bike Week: April 23-26, 2024

In the Boulder Valley School District, we celebrate Bike to School Day a little earlier than the rest of the country. While the national day is celebrated in May, we like to align our celebration with Earth Day in late April. By having an event in April, rather than May, we hope to encourage more biking and rolling to school for the remainder of the school year. Additionally, since our school year comes to a close in May, having an event in April helps to avoid the crunch of lots of other end-of-the-year events.

Bike and Roll to School Day


Extend the fun! Lots of our schools like to celebrate all week and plan fun events and themes each day.
