On May 8, 2019, Richmond City Safe Routes to School observed our 4th annual Bike to School Day, the 8th year that the event has been observed nationally. Students who arrived at school by active transportation that day received a packable rip-stop backpack, which is a great tool for hauling bike locks, water bottles, or whatever a student could need. It’s a great tool to demonstrate that active transportation is real transportation. Here are a few photos from the festivities:
