Bike to School Week 2018

In 2018, BikeNewark partnered with a number of organizations this year to expand Bike to School Week to a week-long series of “bike-ins” from four locations to John R. Downes Elementary School in Newark.

The initial day boasted more than 100 bicycles in the school’s bike racks after four organized bike trains arrived from four meeting locations within the city.
