Bike to School Day is May 8, 2019


Derry Township is getting ready for Bike to School Day on May 8th!  The Township of Derry, Derry Township Police Department and Derry Township School District are teaming up to encourage families to join others from across the country in celebrating National Bike to School Day May 8, 2019. Take advantage of the fresh spring weather to get physical exercise for your body on the way to working out your brain in school.

Families who live too far to safely bike to school can participate, too!  Prior to the event, pick a place to park within a safe bicycling distance of the school.  On May 8, drive part way to school, park and safely make your way to school with your children when you’re ready.

Bike to School raises awareness of the need for safe routes for bicycling and walking and emphasizes physical activity, crosswalk enforcement, and reducing traffic congestion and its effect on the environment.
