Monterey Bay Region Leaders: San Benito County support for kids who bike or walk to school

On national Bike to School Day —May 9th in 2018—here’s a shout-out to Monterey Bay Region leaders in San Benito County.

San Benito led the way for the Monterey Bay tri-county region in providing “Suggested Walking and Bicycling Routes to School”—in English y en español for elementary, middle, and high schools http://sanbenitocog.org/SRTS.php. Although since 2011 that’s been highlighted in Bicycling Monterey’s BicycleMaps section, as well as being highlighted in Bike San Benito tips, many people haven’t spotted that yet (hey, there are over 600 pages of content on bikemonterey.org!). So we wanted to bring this San Benito leadership to your attention during Bike Month 2018!

Here’s to such school-specific tips being made available in Monterey County and throughout the Monterey Bay region, as well as throughout California and beyond.
