Our 2020 dream came true when we saw NO TRAFFIC CONGESTION around schools. This is the perfect time to encourage and support families to get in the habit of riding bikes and/or walking to school.
We would like to see parents choose to stop driving to schools or to not drive within a one block radius of schools to make streets safer for kids biking/walking to schools. This is a huge opportunity to improve physical, mental and emotional health at a time that families are most stressed out.
The Bike Campaign recommends that you bike with younger kids or encourage older kids to ride their bike to school and back home again each morning prior to beginning their distance learning day. There are maps of safest routes to schools at cityofdavis.org - under “suggested routes to schools”. Choose different routes each day and see which ones you like the best.
