Resources for Families

Family BicylingWe offer a range of services and resources to help families across the metro area get active by safely walking and bicycling for transportation, recreation, and fitness.

Safe Routes to School

We work with local school districts, cities, and law enforcement agencies to address physical, safety, and policy barriers to child walking or bicycling to school. Kids that bike or walk to school arrive ready to learn and have fewer problems with attention and health. 

Walk and Bike to School Month/International Walk to School Day
BikeWalkKC leads the regional participation in these October events. Help your school participate with a rally, Walking School Bus, Bicycling School Bus, or other creative event. Learn more…
