Cascade Bicycle Club

Cascade Bicycle Club

Organize your own Bike to School Day!

Age group: All ages
Geographic area: Washington State

By bicycling to school or work you help reduce the amount of carbon, a major cause of climate change, that you produce from riding in cars or buses, increasing your positive impact on climate change. Let Cascade Bicycle Club give you tips on how to design, advertise, monitor, and lead your school in a Bike to School Day any time of the year. Cascade's website provides you with bike maps, safety information, and fun ideas to help make your day a success. Survey how the students in your school get to school, and then compute how many cars worth of pollution you are saving!

Cascade Bicycle Club also invites students to help plan their yearly Bike to Work Day, and to participate in it themselves! Cascade Bicycle Club will provide students with the appropriate materials to help in the planning of the Seattle event, but a Bike to School Day can be done anywhere!
