Encourage your students to take active transportation to and from school with a free class or event! Biking, walking, skating, skateboarding, or riding a scooter to school helps promote physical activity and healthier lifestyles for students.
The iCommute Walk, Ride, and Roll to School program is offering schools and school districts a chance to register for free classes and events that are designed to teach students skills and safety to build confidence and encourage participation.
Don’t miss out! These free classes and events are offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
