This program is part of King Middle School’s leadership as the first Berkeley Middle School to participate in county-wide efforts to allow students to safely arrive by means other than the norm that was increasingly, until recently, one family/one car. This includes a bicycle field trip program for 6th grade students in partnership with Cycles for Change, International Walk and Roll to School Day in October, and National Bike to School and Work Day in May.
