The Trace PTO Walk n’ Roll committee works with our school and city to make walking and biking to school more safe, welcoming, regular, and fun.

The Walk n’ Roll Committee meets every Tuesday after drop off usually outside the office.

Walk n’ Roll Prize Days

We’re keeping up our monthly Walk n’ Roll Prize Days this school year! Kids walking, biking, scooting, or otherwise getting themselves to school receive a special sticker, pen, or pencil. If you’d like to participate but don’t have quite enough time, try parking and walking the last few blocks to school. You can also sign up to volunteer at these and other events to hand out prizes!

NEXT WALK N’ ROLL PRIZE DAY: Friday, April 5, 2024

Bike Trains

Trace currently has two groups of families that bike to school regularly and would love for you to join them. These “bike trains” make it both safer and much more fun to bike to school. One train comes from the east and the other from the west. You can find their routes and schedules on our Bike Trains page.

Coming from the north or south? We’d love to help you start a bike train to Trace from your neighborhood. Get in touch via [email protected].

Ruby Bridges Walk to School Day: Tuesday, November 14, 2023

On Tuesday, November 14th, we participated in the national Ruby Bridges Walk to School Day! A big thank you to all the Trace families who came out early to show support for social justice. Learn more about Ruby Bridges.

Need a Bike or Have a Spare?

If you need a bike or have one you’d like to donate, Community Cycles of California and Good Karma Bikes are great neighborhood resources for getting good quality used bicycles at a reasonable cost.

Crosswalk Visibility Zones

Trace Walk n’ Roll Committee has set cones in red-curb no parking zones to establish “Visibility Zones” near the crosswalks closest to our school entrances. Keeping these zones car-free means drivers and kids crossing the street can see one another.

Why Walk or Bike?

Human-powered transportation makes for cleaner air, engaged kids who care for our planet, neighbors that know one another, energized students who are ready to learn, and lots of joy along the way.

Join Trace Walk n’ Roll

Volunteers get to support happy kids having fun getting to school, for example by handing out goodies at our Walk n’ Roll Prize Days or helping city staff put on a Walk n’ Roll Rodeo. In April 2023, we hosted a Families Bike Together event which got bikes to families that needed them, taught novices how to pedal and balance, and families how to ride together in the street.

In addition to volunteering, you can help organize these and other events by attending our committee meetings every Tuesday morning (generally at 8:30 outside the Trace office).
