In Washington State, there are currently 26 registered Bike to School events. Some schools have chosen to hold their Bike to Work events on other days during Bike Month. Here’s a sampling of what’s being planned:
- Nisqually Middle School in Lacey is holding Nisqually Bikes! on May 16, with rewards for participating students.
- Grant Street Elementary School in Port Townsend is encouraging students to bike/walk to school all week. Kids are logging their trips on a bulletin board so everyone can follow the school’s overall participation.
- View Ridge Elementary School in Seattle is handing out stickers and awarding prizes to participating students. They are also offering bike safety inspections.
- Lincoln Middle School in Pullman has invited parents, teachers, school district administrators and board members to join students for Bike to School Day. The Pullman Police Department and B&L Bicycles are also providing support for this event.
- Pioneer Elementary School in Olympia is holding its Bears on Wheels Bike to School Day. A group bike ride to school is planned for the morning and there will be an after-school bike rodeo.
