our families and community. Click here to see how.

Walk! Bike! Ride! Scoot! Jump!

St. Vrain Safe Routes to School enables and encourages children and their parents to walk, bike or use human power to get to and from school each and every day. The program is designed to increase awareness and be self-motivating. Simply put, our goals are for kids to engage in an active lifestyle, participate with friends and neighbors, and arrive at school with a smile and ready to learn—having had fresh air and physical activity before the school day even begins.

I walk or ride because…

  • Jennifer
    My daughter and I walk our son to preschool in the mornings. It’s 20 minutes that absolutely make the rest of my day. Regardless of what else is going on at home or work, that’s my little window of morning mom time with my kids. We’re just starting to ride bikes as well, and it’s awesome to see our son run into school, announcing to his teachers that he rode his bike all the way by himself.

  • Safe Routes Testimonial Longmont Kelly
    We are fortunate to walk to school every day! My kids make so many connections to their neighborhood, nature, community, and our family in this short time spent outside together, both to and from school, rain or shine!

  • Safe Routes Testimonial Longmont Kristen
    I would do anything to avoid the chaos of the school parking lot at drop-off and pick-up. Plus walking or biking provides great exercise and quality time with the kids. We get exposure to nature to and from school and biking makes us feel more connected to our immediate community.

  • Safe Routes Testimonial Longmont 4th Grader
    I like to hear the birds chirping on the way to school on my bike. And I enjoy riding with my friends who ride scooters or bikes on certain days of the week.

  • Safe Routes Testimonial Longmont 6th Grader
    We like biking to school because it is fun. My friends all meet at us at our house and bike together. I am determined to ride everyday this year unless I am sick. I’m wondering if my friends will stick with it.
