Congratulations to all students and schools who participated in Bike to School Day 2017! We had 52 schools participate with 2,500 riders commuting to school. This year Anchorage ranked 13th in the nation for biking. This year's lucky bike winner was Pamela Lazenby from Ursa Minor. 


On Wednesday, May 10, more than 50 schools and facilities participated in this event promoting healthy habits, safe bicycling and a cleaner environment.


Health and Physical Education teachers and other staff coordinated the event at schools. "Bike to School Day is a great opportunity for our students to explore a healthy alternative for getting to school. We're pleased to support this event that promotes safety and community benefits as well," said ASD Health and Physical Education coordinator Melanie Sutton.
