May is National Bike Month! The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted this celebration. Read on to find news and information about updates to National Bike Month celebrations.

Walk & Bike to School Day is about community, safety and health. Right now our communities need us to focus on health in a different way. This year, due to COVID-19, coming together is not advised. Depending on your community’s situation, we hope individual families will get outside for a walk or bike ride when possible.

The celebration of Walk to School Day has been postponed to October, but suggestions are available for participating from a distance and on social media from May 4 to May 8 to help continue the strong sense of community that makes Bike to School Day so powerful.
