May is Bike to School Month!  And May 8th is Bike to School Day!

Lafayette has partnered with Cascade Bicycle Club and joined hundreds of schools across the state to participate in Bike to School activities all month long. Students can ride to school for the month of May and get a chance to earn incentives throughout the month. Additionally, students can record their biking minutes for each day in May with a calendar.

All completed calendars will be entered into a raffle to win prizes. Remember all biking counts, not just rides to school, but anytime!

Be safe out there, here are some bike safety tips.

  1.  Keep track of the total number of minutes you ride each day with a calendar.
  2. Calculate your total minutes ridden for the month.
  3. Give your completed calendars to the front office.
  4. Your completed calendar will be entered into a raffle drawing.
