Students throughout the Town of Windsor are invited to participate in the 22nd annual National Walk & Bike to School Day, Wednesday, Oct. 10. The 2018 fall event boasts over 4,500 schools registered across the county. Although the nationwide event has a walking focus, local students are encouraged to walk or bike, depending on their preference.

Tozer, Mountain View, Skyview and Grandview Elementary will each have an educational table set up with opportunities for local Walk & Bike to School Day participants to receive a giveaway. Tozer, Mountain View and Skyview offer group rides with meeting and departure locations and times promoted directly to students.

Walk & Bike to School Day encourages a nationwide focused celebration for students in the months of May and October. The event raises awareness of the need to create safer routes for bicycling and walking and emphasizes the importance of issues such as increasing physical activity among children, pedestrian safety, reducing traffic congestion and concern for the environment. The events build connections between families, schools and the broader community.

Locally, the event is a collaboration between the Town of Windsor’s Parks, Recreation and Culture Department and elementary school principals.

For more information on the local event or to find out how your school can participate in the future, contact Open Space and Trails Manager Wade Willis at 970-674-2434, or visit windsorgov.com/bikewindsor. For more information about Walk & Bike to School Day, visit walkbiketoschool.org.

 About the National Center for Safe Routes to School 

Established in May 2006, the National Center for Safe Routes to School assists states and communities in enabling and encouraging children to safely walk and bicycle to school. The National Center serves as the information clearinghouse for the federal Safe Routes to School program with funding from the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration. In 2016, the National Center launched the “Vision Zero for Youth” initiative, which includes encouraging elected officials to use walk and bike to school events to voice their commitment to safe walking and bicycling and the elimination of fatal and serious traffic crashes.
