Bike to School Day
Let’s Roll With It is the theme of Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) 2021 Bike to School Day, scheduled for Wednesday, May 5. The day is designed to promote physical activity whether on the way to school or in the neighborhood.
May is National Bike Month. Biking helps us feel energized, engage with our neighbors, and reduce our carbon footprint. Not only does biking to school help foster lifelong healthy habits, but it can also encourage active transportation in the early-life stage. Starting the school day with a bike ride, walk, or roll will ensure that students are awake and ready to learn.
Students and employees are encouraged to bike or walk to school and work on May 5. Schools that are launching a school-wide effort to participate can register online. Schools that register by May 1 will receive bike safety posters and wristbands.
