Walking and Biking: Route Ideas, Safety Resources, and Activities.

Remember, staying active is a great tool for keeping yourself and your family physically and mentally healthy. Family walks and bike rides are great ways to stay active and de-stress.   Below you will find resources for route planning, safety, and activities to do along the route.

Choosing Your Route

Shoes with laces in a heart

Whether planning a walk or a biking trip, Google Maps (see the walking and biking tabs) might be helpful. Look for low to medium volume streets with lower speeds and supportive infrastructure like stop signs, stop lights and overhead flashers. Or use the Beaverton School District preferred walking and biking routes map which uses the same criteria to highlight safe routes near each of our District schools. Try choosing the elementary, middle or high school nearest you and select a route. With less traffic on our streets, this is a great time to practice your student’s route to school!
