Bike Month is a family event that is inclusive and may also introduce parents to the joy of cycling. We encourage families to ride together whenever possible. Whether you bike with your child to school, the park or to the grocery store, you are:
- Creating daily exercise habits that help keep your child active and healthy
- Modeling safe and responsibly riding while fostering your child’s independence
- Reducing car traffic and carbon emissions
We hope you and your family are able to join us for Bike Month at West Woodland by participating in the Bike Rodeo, Bike to School Day and Bike to School Month. Let’s get rolling in May!
