In July 2021 Bike Fed will begin a 2 year grant cycle to support Madison area schools improving bike and walk safety education and resources. Building on past successes of program partners we are excited to once again be supporting school families in choosing to make more trips by bike or foot to and from school as well as within their community. The goals of the grant are to: Coordinate SRTS Programming, Resources, Communication; Identify Recommended Walk & Bike Routes; Improve Facilities for Walking & Biking; Safe Routes Community School Programs; Biking & Pedestrian Safety Education; and Evaluate Programs
