BikeTexas has developed an extensive guide to organizing biking and walking events for your local school and community. The Safe Routes to School Event Handbook leads you through all the steps of organizing events such as a Bike and Walk to School Day, Bike/Walk Rodeos and Bike/Walk-A-Thon Fundraisers. These fun events teach children bike safety skills while improving health and well-being and making your neighborhood safer for biking and walking.
The free resources below are provided for coordinating Bike & Walk to School Days. All materials, unless otherwise noted, are copyright and created by BikeTexas for use by Bike & Walk to School Day participating schools.
The pages below allow you to download key handouts and materials from the handbook. If you need any help with these downloads or have questions about the book, please contact us at email@example.com.
