Of the likely asks at our 10th Anniversary National Bike Summit this March, one will involve the Safe Routes to High Schools Act, H.R. 4021 recently introduced by Congressman Blumenauer (D-OR). If passed, it would expand the popular Safe Routes to Schools program to include high schools and would work to improve kids’ health by enabling them to walk and bike to class.
The video hints at the possibilities of expanding the Safe Routes to School program. Kudos to the students! Join us at the National Bike Summit and help make this a reality in your community.
