National Bike to School Day

May 8, 2019 @ 7:30 am - 8:30 am

National Bike to School Day

Bike to School Day is just around the corner. On My 8th, all students, families, and community members are invited to join in the fun by starting their day with a walk or bike ride to school on Bike to School Day. We hope to have three routes of “Walking/Biking School Buses” in Grand Marais heading to both Cook County Schools and Great Expectations School.

If your student normally gets a ride to school, come in a little early and walk or bike with a Walking School Bus from one of the starting locations: the Cook County Courthouse (7:30 am departure), Birchwood Apartments (7:35 am departure), or County Road 7 and 7th Ave. East (7:35 am departure). Students and community members are welcome to join along the route or meet at the starting location.

Get up, get your blood flowing, and get your neurons firing!  Walking or biking to school or work is a great way to start your day!

This is one of many initiatives spearheaded by the local Safe Routes to School Committee, working to make it safer and easier for students to walk and bike to and from school. The Walking School Bus routes take advantage of the sidewalks, several which were built after being identified as being key for Safe Routes to School and community connections by foot.

Cook County Safe Routes to School (SRTS) strives to improve the health of kids and our community by making walking and bicycling to school safer, easier, and more enjoyable. For more information about Safe Routes to School Bike to School Day or to volunteer, contact SRTS Coordinator, Andrea Orest, at 218-387-2330 or andrea@sawtoothmountainclinic.org. You can also visit the Grand Marais Area Walk and Roll Wednesday Facebook page.  This work is supported by the Statewide Health Improvement Partnership/Minnesota Department of Health through Healthy Northland.
