About the Walk+Roll May Challenge:
The first-ever National Bike+Roll to School Day took place on May 9, 2012, in coordination with the League of American Bicyclists’ National Bike Month. Almost 1,000 local events in 49 states and the District of Columbia joined together to encourage children to safely bicycle to school.
The event builds on the popularity of Walk+Roll to School Day, which is celebrated across the country–and the world–each October. Many communities and schools have been holding spring walk and bicycle to school events for years. National Bike+Roll to School Day provides an opportunity for schools across the country to join together to celebrate and to build off of the energy of National Bike Month.
