Building off the success of the national Walk to School Day in October, the National Center for Safe Routes to School has taken the concept and has successfully transferred the idea to two wheels.

Building on the success and momentum of National Bike Month, Bike to School Day will be held May 9 this year and according to the League of American Bicyclists, the event will "unite and energize schools, communities and families across the country."

Because the event is in its infancy, you can register and organize a Bike-to-School event in your community or see if one already exists that you can join. Registered schools also have the chance to win one of 10 Saris bike racks for your school. 

Not in school? Don't worry! You can also register as a local expert in your community and offer helpful tips and guidelines to those interested in participating or starting their own event. And if you've got too much work to do, you can still participate in National Bike Month by joining our May Commuter Challenge, or by just riding your bike!

Encourage and inspire your neighbors to participate and enroll in the event - afterall, the more the merrier!
