This Wednesday, May 3rd it's walk and bike to school day! It's a statewide event organized by Massachusetts Safe Routes to School Program.

According to MassDOT, almost 300 schools participated last year, setting a record. This year they hope to set a new record by inviting more schools to participate.

While trying to show the benefits of healthy transportation, schools in urban, suburban, and rural areas are trying to come up with events to help the visibility of biking and walking in Massachusetts.

To register your school for their events you can go here and sign up.

Don't forget to walk or ride your bike to school this Wednesday, May 3rd!
