Let’s celebrate students’ active commutes of walking, biking, and rolling to school and other destinations here in the Commonwealth and all across the globe. Bedford has been celebrating Walk, Bike, and Roll to School days since 2008!  This is an opportunity to highlight the many benefits of using active transportation modes for students and families.
