Wayne Elementary School to Celebrate National Bike to School Day on May 8, 2013
Wayne Elementary School, Wayne State College Exercise Science Students, Wayne Green Team and Service-Learning will join schools from around the country to celebrate National Bike to School Day on May 8, 2013.
Students will be encouraged to ride their bikes to school along with parents, teachers and community leaders. Wayne State College students and community members will volunteer to provide adult escorts from four locations as part of a "Bike Bus Caravans".
Bicyclists will gather at the closest 'Bike Bus Stop' indicated on distributed maps between 7:15 and 7:30 a.m. in order to ride to school by 8 a.m. Upon arrival at school, all Bicyclists will receive a wrist band and a raffle ticket. There will be a brief assembly to celebrate National Bike to School Day and have a Raffle Drawing. Prizes will include fifteen T-Shirts and One New BIKE from Cleveland Bikes in Norfolk!
If students don't have bicycles, we encourage them to walk to school with their parents or friends. All students who bicycle or walk to school on Wednesday May 8 will be included in the raffle drawing.
Bike to School Day encourages a nationwide bike-focused celebration for students in the month of May and builds on the popularity and success of Walk to School Day, which is celebrated across the country - and the world - each October.
Bike to School Day events raise awareness of the need to create safer routes for bicycling and walking and emphasize 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.
The event is being organized by Wayne State College Exercise Science Students, WSC Service-Learning, Wayne Green Team and Wayne Elementary School.

About National Bike to School Day
National Bike to School Day, coordinated by the National Center for Safe Routes to School, provides an opportunity for communities across the country to join together to bicycle to school on the same day. The event builds on the excitement surrounding National Bike Month, led by the League of American Bicyclists each May, as well as the popularity of Walk to School Day, coordinated by the National Center for Safe Routes to School every October.
National Bike to School Day is based on the Walk to School Day model. Walk to School Day was founded in 1997 as a way to bring community leaders and children together to build awareness for communities to be more walkable. The one-day event has now grown to a month-long celebration with students and parents from more than 4,000 U.S. schools joining millions of Walk to School Day and Month participants worldwide. The reasons for walking have grown just as quickly as the event itself. For more information on bike and walk to school activities in the United States, visit www.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. Part of the University of North Carolina Highway Safety Research Center, the National Center also provides technical support and resources and coordinates online registration efforts for U.S. Walk to School Day and facilitates worldwide promotion and participation.
