The Association of Central Oklahoma Governments (ACOG) started the Bike To Work Day program in 2004. We are proud to house the region’s Bicycle-Pedestrian Advisory Committee. Charlotte Adcock, Assistant Planner-Multimodal, is our Bike-Ped Coordinator.
The National Center for Safe Routes to School (National Center) is committed to empowering communities to make walking and bicycling to school a safe, appealing, preferred choice for families. The National Center facilitates communities in becoming places for safe walking and bicycling for everyone starting with children and the trip to school. In 2016, we launched the initiative “Vision Zero for Youth,” linking Walk to School Day with communities and elected officials making a commitment to promote safe walking and bicycling and to eliminate fatal and serious traffic crashes.
Brought to you by the national coordinators of Walk and Bike to School Day, Vision Zero for Youth encourages communities to focus safety improvements and slow traffic speeds where children and youth walk and bike, with the ultimate goal of benefiting all community members.
Bike to School Day is May 9. Check out who is participating. So far, 16 Oklahoma schools have registered to officially participate.
Walk and Bike to School Day events can be simple or elaborate. A school might start with hosting a big event, and then move to a low key celebration over time as students become more accustomed to walking and biking on a regular basis. Another school might start simple and then build efforts in subsequent years. Read on to learn more about planning the event.
