In 2015, Gov. Bill Walker declared May 6, 2015 Bike to School Day in Anchorage. Read the proclamation
Anchorage School District students will be riding their bikes to celebrate Bike to School Day on Wednesday, May 10. More than 50 schools and facilities will be participating in this event that promotes healthy habits, safe bicycling and a cleaner environment.
Health and Physical Education teachers and other staff are coordinating the event at schools. "Bike to School Day is a great opportunity for our students to explore a healthy alternative for getting to school. We're pleased to support this event that promotes safety and community benefits as well," said ASD Health and and Physical Education coordinator Melanie Sutton.
Students must wear a helmet to participate and should wear bright clothing. We suggest you help your student find a safe route to school. The Municipality of Anchorage Safe Routes Web page has maps that can help. Your school can also provide assistance.
Join the fun. Parents are invited to ride with their students to school.
