Middle & High School Events 

On Bike to School Day, middle schools will host mini energizer stations set up at the bike storage areas where bicyclists can enjoy refreshments and receive goody bags filled with safety information and items to help with their bike ride. The Alameda County Safe Routes to School program is working in conjunction with the City of Pleasanton and schools to help prepare students for Bike to School Day!

Helmet Fitting/Exchange Program & BikeMobile Visits

To prepare middle school students to cycle to and from school, the City of Pleasanton and Pleasanton Police Department are holding helmet fittings/exchange events plus visits from the BikeMobile. The BikeMobile, funded by Alameda County Transportation Commission, provides free minor bike tune-ups and repairs. 

Students with a helmet will have it inspected for cracks or damage.  A new helmet will be provided only if a replacement is necessary.  Students without a helmet will need to complete a PARENT PERMISSION SLIP to be eligible to receive a one as part of the Fitting/Exchange program.  Students without a signed permission slip will be given a helmet only on a case-by-case basis and while supplies last. Permission slips may be picked up from your school office.  

Fittings/Exchanges occur immediately after school next to the Bike Storage Area while supplies last or until 3:45 p.m. BikeMobile will be available after school beginning at 3 p.m. until all bikes are completed or until 6 p.m.
