Way to Go Clawson! Bike To School Day May 8th!
City of Clawson’s Proclamation for National Bike to School Day! Bike to school day is part of the celebration of National Bike Month. The event is scheduled with a safety class for youngsters and adults, coupled with a cool bike ride meetup in the heart of town!
Clawson recognized the growing interest in urban cycling and also that fewer children walk or bike to school compared to a generation ago. In 1969 48% of students grades K-8 walked or biked to school. In 2009 13% of students in grades K-8 walked or biked to school. Clawson recongnized that walking or biking gives children a sense of responsibility and independence and that the entire community benefits when there is less car congestion and more bikers and pedestrians.
School Superintendent Monique Beels, Mark Pollock our City Manager, Penny Luebs Mayor and Clawson Police Bike Officers will be riding bikes to school with the youngsters.
