Bike to School Day & Bike Fairy Week

The Bike Fairy is coming!

Once again, the Bike Fairy is plotting to visit Portland schools this May 2018. We're cooking up some special surprises to keep biking safe and fun! 

During Walk + Roll Challenge Month 2017, the Bike Fairy visited 1,319 bikes, scooters, and skateboards at 107 schools. Congratulations to two of our amazing schools with more than 100 bikes - Woodstock Elementary (111) and Llewellyn Elementary (109). Way to go!

Thank you for riding your bike! From, The Bike Fairy
