As increases in cycling among adults continues to grab attention in Seattle, school kids may actually be leading the way. Many Seattle schools saw bike-to-school rates that would make any major employer drool, and there’s no sign of things slowing down.

Not only is it dangerous to have so many parents drive their kids to and from school, but it’s simply not cool anymore.

So if you are a parent, teacher, school administrator or community leader, Cascade Bicycle Club and Washington Bikes have teamed up to hold a free workshop Saturday so you can learn how your school can join the bike-to-school revolution.

Details from the Cascade blog:

Cascade Bicycle Club and Washington Bikes have partnered to encourage new leaders and support Bike to School programs already in motion across the state. As part of that mission, we’re providing a free workshop Saturday, Feb. 8 for community leaders interested in fostering bicycle culture in schools.

At this workshop you’ll learn how to start a Bike to School program, organize and lead a bike train, and how to engage the community in your efforts. Below is a workshop schedule. Participants may attend as many or as few sessions as they choose.

  • 10:30-noon: How to start a Bike to School program & funding sources
  • Noon-1 p.m.:  Bike train training
  • 1 – 2 p.m.:  How to organize a Bike Rodeo community event

The workshop is ideal for parents, teachers, school administrators, public health officials, and community leaders—anyone interested in fostering active transportation to schools. Leaders from Northshore, Lake Washington, and Seattle school districts have already signed up to attend.

Join us for a great conversation, and let us know how we can better support you in fostering active bicycle culture in your community.
