Register for Bike to School Day!

Gear up for Bike to School Day on May 5th! Head to to register your biking event. You're welcome to register an event happening any day during May!

Similar to last year, you can register a family, neighborhood, or school event. No matter how you choose to do it, your school benefits. If it's the first time your school is participating, we’ll send your school an awesome, one-of-a-kind 2021 Bike to School Day decal. These are interesting and often challenging times, which is why this year’s Bike to School Day motto is so perfect: Let’s roll with it!
