Back to School season is upon us. For those of you with students in your lives this time of year is both exciting and stressful. It also presents a great opportunity to set positive habits for your family that will last the year.
Try to make time once a week to walk, bike, or roll with your student to school. The latest edition of Safe Routes News is chock-full of tips and updates if you need inspiration.
In this issue:
- Get Healthy, Get Moving
- Walk + Bike to School Day
- Meet the Ambassadors
- Beach's Bike Train
- Drive Smart, Don't Idle
- Neighborhood Greenways
- and, of course, a new puzzle!

Good luck with back to school!
PS – Join us for the first ever NW Sunday Parkways on September 26th. Safe Routes will be distributing free bike helmets to youth, but that's just one of tons of fun activities planned. More info here: http://www.PortlandSundayParkways.org
PPS – Looking for other ways to get involved with Safe Routes? Why not volunteer with one of our community bike rides or organize an event for International Walk + Bike to School Day on October 6 at your neighborhood school?
