Join BikeArlington, Kidical Mass, and Arlington Safe Routes to School to prepare you and your student/s for the commute back to school! Biking to school is a great way to start off the day, help the environment, and get each of us the daily activity we need.
At our bike check and bike rodeo, we’ll help your student/s check their bike to see that it’s ready to ride and show students the best ways to navigate Arlington’s roads and trails. We’ll share helpful tips, and provide customized route guidance to make sure students are ready to conquer their trip to school.
All are welcome at this kid-friendly event with engaging demonstrations and activities for students ready to rock the bike ride back to school this fall!
Spring is here! Join BikeArlington in getting students ready to bike to school at our Spring into Biking Rodeo! We’ll be having skills courses for riders to practice riding, bike checks to make sure bikes are good to go, and tabling activities to help students prepare for their school commute. Elementary & middle school students are encouraged to attend as well as anyone who wants to learn about biking! Be sure to ask us about bringing a Bike Train to your school!
