On May 9 Redmond students, their families, teachers and the community are invited to join schools from around the country to celebrate National Bike to School Day.

Throughout May, eight Redmond schools including Audubon, Ben Rush, Horace Mann, Norman Rockwell and Redmond Elementary schools, Redmond and Rose Hill Middle Schools, and Redmond High will promote biking to school through the Redmond SchoolPool Program. The goal of the Redmond SchoolPool is to reduce traffic while giving students a healthy, fun, and safe way to get to school.

Bike to School events work to create safer routes for biking while also emphasizing the importance of increasing physical activity among children, outdoor opportunities, a sense of responsibility and independence, pedestrian safety, concern for the environment and reducing traffic congestion.
