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.

If you need to borrow a bicycle or bike-related gear to get started, Bedford has a Free Bicycle Lending program. Email: email@example.com for more information.
Residents wanting to explore how they might start a bike or walking train in their neighborhood, or to consider adding active transit to their routine are encouraged to learn about resources and see examples of successful programs around the country: http://guide.saferoutesinfo.org/walking_school_bus/promising_examples.cfm
