May is National Bike Month, and C-U Safe Routes to School is recognizing it with Bike & Roll to School Day. C-U SRTS is a partnership between MTD and SafeKids Champaign County with a goal to “make it safer and more fun for students to walk and bike to school and to encourage more walking and biking.”

On May 3rd, local students are encouraged to join a bike train to school. Those that register ahead of time get a t-shirt and bike reflector. Check their website for more resources and parent information.

If you want to get more involved in biking-related things in C-U, check out the C-U Bike Month website for more events, as well as ways to get involved with advocating for bike safety and accessibility.
