About Walk + Bike


Oregon’s Walk + Bike program is coordinated by the Bicycle Transportation Alliance (BTA) and partners with Safe Routes to School programs to encourage children, youth, and families to use safe, active, transportation to get to and from school and throughout their communities throughout the year.

 

Two statewide Walk + Bike events take place each year that this site helps us coordinate.  

May: Walk + Bike to School Challenge Month

This free statewide event is a friendly competition that encourages students to walk and bike to school for the whole month of May.  Look left and click to register your school and to receive information and incentives to get your Challenge started.

 

October: Walk + Bike to School Day

This free international event is held on the first Wednesday of October each year. Look left and click to register your school and to receive information and incentives on how to participate in this fun and visible event.

Many more events, activities, trainings, and development opportunities also occur. Visit the BTA or Oregon Safe Routes to School websites to learn about more events.
