Walk+Bike Network

We believe every kid deserves to walk and bike to school (and other places) safely!

The Oregon Walk+Bike to School Network conducts a monthly information and resource-sharing conference call and offers a quarterly newsletter and yearly low cost trainings. The Network facilitates the semi-annual Walk+Bike Summer Camp and the Annual Meeting, hosts a listserve, and promotes the Walk+Bike Challenge and Walk+Bike to School Day each year.

Members of the Network get the inside scoop on what’s planned for upcoming Walk+Bike events and give input. By being a Network Member, you’ll also find out what other parents, teachers, and Safe Routes to School coordinators are doing to get students walking and biking in their communities. Members also share ideas and success stories or questions and challenges they’d like some help problem-solving.

Contact LeeAnne Fergason to join the mailing list and receive the monthly call announcement and notes. Calls usually take place the first Monday of the month at 3:30pm Pacific.

Learn more about Walk+Bike events at walknbike.org.
