Safe Routes Spring Kick-Off Brings Walking, Biking Fun to North Portland

A family from Cesar Chavez enjoys the bike rodeo and their swanky new helmets.

Even with the looming rain clouds, families from across Portland came out to Cesar Chavez School to celebrate walking and biking to school this past weekend. Families enjoyed an array of activities, including a bike skills rodeo, trainings on how to fix a flat tire and how to lead a walking school bus, great food and much more. In addition, the Spring Kick-off offered free basic bike repair which resulted in 18 bikes rolling away with smiling cyclists ready to ride to school!

Safe Routes to School staff were excited to welcome all families and especially thankful to Cesar Chavez staff and volunteers that helped with the Safe Routes Spring Kick-off.
