Hike Bike to School begins this week
April 12, 2016
Steamboat Springs students will be trading in their skis in favor of bicycles this week as Hike and Bike to School gets underway.
The Hike and Bike to School program runs every Friday from April 15 to the end of the school year, and elementary and middle school students are encouraged to walk or ride their bikes to school every Friday.
Students, who may or may not be accompanied by their parents, walk or ride their bikes to school. Times vary depending on which school respective students attend.
Bus riders can also participate in the program by being dropped off (with accompanying permission slip) at the high school and walking the last bit of the way to school on the Butcherknife Trail. Community service officers and parent volunteers will be on-hand to help kids safely cross busy intersections.
Prizes will be awarded to kids who hike or bike to school five days of the school year, and two grand-prize winners from each school will be drawn from these names.
