Get Involved

The BTA is at work across Oregon, in classrooms, on the streets, and advocating for a safe, accessible mix of transportation in our state.

Walk+Bike Events


The Bicycle Transportation Alliance coordinates two encouragement events each year, International Walk+Bike Day in October and Walk+Bike Challenge Month in May.

You can find more information and register your school for both friendly competitions at

There are also two development opportunities for educators and enthusiastic individuals looking to build and improve Walk+Bike programs around Oregon.

Encouragement Events

International Walk+Bike to School Day

Join over 200 schools across the state and thousands across the globe in walking and biking to school on the first Wednesday in October. Participating schools receive incentives and support from Bicycle Transportation Alliance Staff.

Walk+Bike Challenge Month

In May challenge families at your school to walk and bike. Participating schools receive a packet of incentives and support from Bicycle Transportation Alliance Staff.

Development Opportunities

Walk+Bike Annual Meeting

Join enthusiastic individuals from across the state to share and evaluate different Walk+Bike programs. Discussion focuses on barriers to success and what is needed to move individual and statewide programs forward. Every child deserves to walk and bike to school safely and this annual event is meant for everyone who’s working to make that a reality.

Walk+Bike Summer Camp (formerly the Walk+Bike Retreat)

Everyone working to give kids an option to walk and bike safely will want to attend this in-depth, 2-day retreat. During the Walk+Bike Summer Camp you’ll dig into problems and learn to solve them together using all the resources state-wide partners can muster!

Get an invitation to the Walk+Bike Summer Camp by joining the Walk+Bike Network.
