Wednesday, October 5th is Walk+Bike to school day

Tomorrow is Walk+Bike to School day, an international event held on the first Wednesday of October. Walking and biking to school has many benefits, first and foremost, it prepares kids for school, walking reduces stress and increases creativity. Plus the extra exercise doesn’t hurt. Replacing car trips to school reduces congestion and pollution, and walking or biking helps build support for infrastructure improvements that benefit the entire neighborhood. If you live too far from your child’s school and need to drive, consider parking a number of blocks from the school and walking the rest.
