The Walk + Bike Challenge is a friendly competition aimed at encouraging more kids and families to walk and bike to and from school and throughout their neighborhoods. The Challenge is hosted by the Bicycle Transportation Alliance (BTA) with support from the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT), the Safe Routes to School National Partnership, our sponsors, and other partners.
Once you register your school for the Walk+Bike Challenge, be sure to order your free incentives! Incentives include: stickers, temporary tattoos, prize ribbons, bandanas, pencils, and helmets. See button below. Check out the Resources page for various tips, curriculum, and for your free coordinator packet that includes: tips and resources for promoting the event, organizing parent volunteers, procuring local prizes, and how to track active transportation trips taken by students.
You can track on a weekly basis or for the whole month. The BTA will hold weekly prize drawings for schools that log trips each week to win extra incentives, gift certificates, and other great prizes. In addition, you will be automatically registered for Fire Up Your Feet as your first step to additional cash awards, more than $10,000 available, to support your school’s walking, bicycling and other physical activity programs.
