The City of Austin Safe Routes to School Program will join Brentwood Elementary School to celebrate National Bike to School Day on Wednesday. To celebrate, students, parents and members of the community will ride from Crestview Pharmacy to Brentwood Elementary at 6:45 a.m. The event will also feature a raffle. In a news release, Public Works Division Manager Crad Crager explained, “The goal of our Safe Routes to School Program is to create safer routes for bicycling and walking and to emphasize the importance of physical activity among children and reduce traffic congestion. … Using active transportation helps build connections between families, schools and community.” National Bike to School Day is part of National Bike Month, which is May.
