Bicycle Network: National Ride2School Day
All you need to know to have a successful Ride2School Day celebration.
In the 1970s, 80% of school children were active on the way to school. Today, only 20% experience the joy of getting fresh air on the school journey. National Ride2School Day provides an opportunity for Australian students, parents and teachers to give riding, walking, skating or scooting to school a go, while celebrating the regular walkers and wheelers.
On this day, an active journey to school is normal and the entire school community gets behind it. It is a chance for the nation to celebrate and prove it can be done. After showing it’s achievable we encourage school communities to utilise our Ride2School program to assist them in keeping the momentum going throughout the entire year.
