DENVER (CBS4)– Hundreds of students pedaled to class to celebrate Bike to School day on Wednesday.
Hundreds of families traded in their car keys for bike helmets to bike to school for National Walk & Bike To School Day.
Schools throughout Denver supported the bike to school day.
At Southmoor Elementary, students were excited to pedal the last block in a bike parade.
At the finish line, students were treated to healthy snacks before starting their day.
The idea is to emphasize getting active by either cycling or walking to school while still being safe by paying attention to surroundings.
