Walk/Bike/Wheel to School Day will be recognized in all of Bozeman’s elementary and middle schools with celebrations of students biking, walking and wheeling to school. This date reinforces the Safe Routes to School goal of changing the habits of an entire generation, and creating sustainable and long-lasting walking and biking programs.  The event builds on the popularity of Walk to School Day, which is celebrated in the District, across the country – and the world – each October.
