National Walk to School Day will take place on October 8, 2014. The first-ever National Bike to School Day took place on May 9, 2012, as part of National Bike Month. 950 local events in 49 states across the U.S. encouraged children to safely bicycle or walk to school. Many communities and schools have been holding spring walk and bicycle to school events for years. National Bike to School Day provides an opportunity for schools across the country to join together and to build on the energy of National Bike Month. In 2013, more than 1,700 schools participated in National Bike to School Day on May 9. For more information about this event go to www.walkbiketoschool.org .
