Congratulations to all schools that participated in International Walk to School Day!
We had 41 schools and over 11,000 students in Solano County take part on October 8, 2014. For the first time, all seven cities and school districts participated in the event.
Well done to everyone who took part! Walking to school is a healthy way to start the day. Participating students and parents not only get important excercise, they are helping provide cleaner air and reduced traffic congestion around schools, making the journey to school safer and healthier!

Bike Mobile Visits Solano County
We are pleased to have the Bay Area Bike Mobile in Solano County. They offer free bike repair for children, while you wait. This is a great event for Safe Routes to School. The Bike Mobile and Safe Routes to School staff, have already attended events in Rio Vista, Dixon and Fairfield. We have additional events scheduled in Solano County for the Bike Mobile to attend. Look for us to advertise their attendance at future Safe Routes to School events. Check our calendar to see where they will be next in Solano County.
