About the City of Portland Safe Routes to School program
The Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) and Multnomah County Library invite students from pre-K to 12th grade to design bike lane art for the 2020 “Bike to Books” digital design contest, part of May Bike Month. First-place designs are installed on Portland streets by PBOT striping crews.
With the help of our partners at The Street Trust, Safe Routes to School provides bicycle safety instruction at schools throughout the Portland area.
The City of Portland wants to see more people using bikes for transportation and has compiled these key resources for keeping your bike safe and secure.

Traveling to school or even out of the country doesn't happen much right now. Stretch your brain and learn about getting around -- everywhere!
Aim for 60 minutes of movement each day! PE, playing sports, dancing, biking, or going for a walk are all good ways to keep your heart and lungs healthy, circulate blood flow, and get a good night's sleep.
Doing nice things for others causes our brain to release endorphins. Endorphins reduce stress, relieve pain, and basically make you feel pretty good. Everyone wins!
Reduce stress, relax, and give your mind a break. These activities help lower blood pressure, heart rate, and sharpen your focus for the next round of classes.
