Wednesday, October 7 is International Walk or Bike to School Day.  There are lists of organized events and Safe Routes to School on Walktoschool-usa.org, so you can find one in your state and town.  Actually, the entire month of October is Walk to School Month, and their website (iwalktoschool.org) is maintained by the National Center for Safe Routes to School, which is partially funded and maintained by the UNC Highway Safety Research Center, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the U.S. Department of Transportation.

If you’re in Bikerumor’s hometown of Greensboro, Safe Guilford is holding a “Walk This Way” event that day at Peck Elementary School. They would be grateful for any volunteers to help in the morning or afternoon, to help kids get to & from school safely by foot or by bike. They could also use help with conducting walkability/bikeability audits around the school, and judging the essay and/or coloring contests. Anyone interested can email Leigha Shepler or call 336-832-3939.

UNCG is using this day, Bike to School, to kick off its Bicycling Commuter Club! We will have a bike registration, free give aways, air pump station etc from 10:30 to 1:30 in Walker Circle. We have monthly brown bags lunches planned- Oct will be focused on “getting started” while Nov will be on “Legal Issues Faced by Cyclists”..
