This morning Portlanders from every corner of the city made an extra special effort to walk and bike to school. According to PBOT, 65 schools participated in the annual Walk and Bike to School Day. We asked our friends on Twitter to share photos of their rides to school so we could share some of the action here on the Front Page.

Walking and biking to school is booming in Portland thanks to the City’s Safe Routes to School program and the work of the Bicycle Transportation Alliance (who works under contract with PBOT to implement the program). Today’s big push to get kids on bikes and out of cars and buses will serve as a catalyst for another successful Safe Routes season.

Here’s how it looked…

Keep on biking to school! And we love covering this issue, so make sure to get in touch with us if you have school biking stories to share.

NOTE: At BikePortland, we love your comments. We love them so much that we devote many hours every week to read them and make sure they are productive, inclusive, and supportive (heck, sometimes we even fix your typos!). That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with tact and respect. This is our business and we do not tolerate mean commenters who add nothing of value to the discussion.

Unfortunately, we are not robots and we don't always catch everything. You can help by notifying us if you see inappropriate comments. Thanks! — Jonathan and Michael

    Awesome. BTW, my own kid biked to school under self-power (i.e., not in a cargo bike, trailer or tow-behind) for the first time this morning.
