Happy National #Ride2School Day!
My son’s kindergarten, daycare centre and local primary school kids joined the ‘bike bus’ and rode through the local streets with smiles and cheers before finishing up with a healthy breakfast in their bush garden.
Over the past 40 years the number of children who are physically active every day has significantly dropped. Today, levels of physical activity are at an all-time low. In the 1970s, eight out of ten students rode or walked to school. That number has dropped to just two out of ten.
Cycling, scootering and walking to school is an easy way to start the day with some exercise – and studies show kids are then happier, more engaged and ready to learn.
Let’s get more kids healthy and active – plus riding to school is FUN!
