Colorado schools celebrate Bike to School Day next Wednesday

Next Wednesday is the sixth annual national Bike to School Day. Around 100 schools in Colorado are participating in the event, which helps to promote safe biking routes for children, as well as the importance of physical activity. More than 1,500 schools are participating nationwide.

The event coincides with National Bike Month. National Bike to School Day was created after the success of Walk to School Day, which falls in October.

The Colorado Department of Transportation is encouraging drivers to pay extra attention on the roads to look out for bicyclists throughout the month.
