Bicycle Network: Ride2School (179)
National Ride2School Day
National Ride2School Day is the perfect opportunity for Australian students and school communities to embrace a healthier start and to try walking and riding to school for themselves.
National Ride2School Day is the flagship event for the Ride2School program and Bicycle Network. With more than 2,000 school and 350,000 students taking part each year, it's a day for celebration.
Over the past 40 years the number of children who are physically active everyday has significantly dropped. Today, levels of physical activity are at an all-time low. In the 1970s, eight out of ten students rode or walked to school. That number has dropped to just two out of ten. Sadly, Australian kids are now spending up to 16 hours of their day in front of a screen.
National Ride2School Day is the perfect opportunity for every school community to ditch the car and embrace a healthier start to the day by riding and walking to school.
National Ride2School is more just a day, it can be done everyday. If you're looking to encourage active school community but you're not sure where to start, contact us today.
