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: We love your comments and work hard to ensure they are productive, considerate, and welcoming of all perspectives. Disagreements are encouraged, but only if done with tact and respect. If you see a mean or inappropriate comment, please contact us and we'll take a look at it right away. Thank you — Jonathan

    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.
