Walk+Bike Challenge

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 around their communities throughout the year.

Two statewide Walk + Bike events take place each year.

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. During the Challenge, school coordinators track the number of students biking, walking, and skating to school throughout the month. At the end of the Challenge, prizes go to the schools that log the most biking trips, the most walking trips, largest total number of students walking and biking, and highest percentage of students (out of the total school population) walking and biking.

Nationwide the rate of kids biking or walking to school has been on the decline since the 1970s while the risks to kids’ physical health and well-being associated with inactivity have risen. But in Portland, the percentage of kids biking or walking to school has risen from 28% in 2006 to 41% in 2013.

October: Walk + Bike to School Day

This free international event is held on the first Wednesday of October each year. Register your school 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.

This year’s International Walk+Bike to School Day is Wednesday, October 5th 2016. Register your school today! Sign up for the Safe Routes to School Network to receive updates on all things Safe Routes to School and Walk+Bike.
