Wednesday morning, hundreds of children will peddle through Miami Beach along with parents, school staff and volunteers as part of National Bike to School Day.

The event is hosted by the University of Miami’s Kids Neuroscience Center and their bike safe program. The first ever day was celebrated back in 2012 as part of bike month. Since then, it has spread to all 50 states as a way to teach children at a young age to ride safely and stay active.

This program’s main mission is to promote helmet safety while encouraging children to go play outdoors and ride their bikes through their neighborhoods in a safe manner.

The group of elementary school children will be escorted through the city by police as they learn about injury prevention.

“You can teach kids in the classroom but if they don’t get to experience it then it’s not the same thing,” said Milagro Arango, the principal of Miami’s Roberts K-8 Center.

In Miami Beach, the route will stretch over several blocks, starting at Flamingo Park on 13th Street and Michigan Avenue, ending at Fienberg Fisher K-8 Center at 14th Street and Washington Avenue. The ride kicks off at 7:30 a.m.
