Bike to School Day

National Bike to School Day 2016 is Wednesday, May 4, and Street Smarts Diablo is sponsoring Bike to School events throughout Contra Costa all spring long.

Why bike? It’s fun, it’s healthy, it reduces traffic, and it’s pollution-free! Students are reminded to use Street Smarts to stay safe while biking, skateboarding, or riding scooters to school:

      • Wear helmets
      • Ride on the right side of the road (go in the same direction as traffic)
      • Stop at red lights and stop signs, and
      • Make eye contact with other drivers

Parents are reminded to use Street Smarts while driving in the 25 MPH school zone. Your children – and their classmates – are worth the extra time it takes to drive safely.
