Upcoming Events

April 9 – Virginia Safe Routes to School Bike Trains and Walking School Buses Best Practices Webinar – In preparation of National Bike to School Day, please join the Virginia Safe Routes to School Program for a webinar where we’ll discuss the best practices for establishing and sustaining walking school buses and bike trains at your school.  Walking school buses and bike trains are great ways to encourage both students and parents to walk or bike to school as well as teach pedestrian and bicycling safety, and they are a great way to include the community in a Safe Routes to School project. Register online now to help get bike trains and walking school buses moving at your school!

April 16 – National Center for SRTS Webinar: Putting the pedal to the medal: Ideas for promoting bicycling.  This webinar will feature two schools and plenty of ideas to prepare for National Bike to School Day. The first school will share its secrets for keeping its seven year old bike promotion program fresh and sustained, including themes and bicycling field trips.  The second presentation will discuss how to engage with 6th grade students to teach bike safety and the key partners that have catapulted bicycling excitement to new heights.  Be sure to register online!
