It’s Walk and Bike to School Day in Minnesota (WED). MnDOT’s Dave Cowan says there are many benefits to walking or biking to school, including…

“Creating safe routes to school, building a sense of community or school spirit and inspiring families to use their feet for the school commute a little more often.”

Students can also participate in a Bike to School Day poster contest by creating and submitting posters showing how they feel when they ride a bicycle to the Minnesota Safe Routes to School Facebook page using the hashtag mnbikes. The top three posters will win prizes.
