While building a sense of community and school spirit, Walk and Roll to School Days are opportunities for families to integrate and discover the benefits of active commuting to school or other day-to-day destinations such as the park, the library, grocery store, etc. 

Menlo Park’s Safe Routes to School program will develop encouragement and education materials to help families to stay active and healthy during the month of May. 

Other Bike Month celebrations in the Bay Area:
  • National Bike to School Day: May 5
  • Silicon Valley Bicycle Film Festival: May 7–16
    Taking place virtually in Silicon Valley, enjoy a broad selection of short bicycle films from around the globe and many cultures.

    On May 21 and the following weekend, the Silicon Valley Bike Coalition will have energizer stations and pop-ups distributed across the region where you can pick up a free official Bike to Work Day bag if you sign up and Pledge to Ride. T-shirts are also available at some locations for folks who make a donation of $35 or more.
