Alki Elementary school teacher Terry Kegel was a big part of the parade for last year's Bike to School Day. This year the event will be joined by Seattle Public Schools Superintendent Jose Banda, plus representatives from Cycle U Bike Store and Cascade Bicycle Club.

Superintendent Jose Banda will join Alki Elementary for Bike to School Day May 7

In honor of National Bike To School Day on May 7th, parents and students are invited to take part in Bike to School Day by joining one of two bike trains that will converge at Alki Elementary.

You are welcome to join the train at any point along the route. After a group picture, students will be able to store their bikes for the day in the courtyard next to Mr. Kegel’s classroom and then enjoy a healthy breakfast and awards ceremony.

All bikers will receive prizes and special awards will be given to the Safest Riders and the Most Visible Rider (you are urged to be creative). This year we are lucky to have some guest riders who will join us, including Superintendent Jose Banda and representatives from Cycle U Bike Store and Cascade Bicycle Club.

Parents/guardians, please note:
Teachers are leading this event, but YOU are responsible for supervising the safety of your child by biking along. You must accompany your children in order for them to participate.
