The Oregon Walk + Bike to School Day event kicked off Wednesday with a group of students and adults making their way to Sunnyside Environmental School.

Joined by Mayor Tom Potter, Commissioner Sam Adams and others, the event - organized by the Bicycle Transportation Alliance and Willamette Pedestrian Coalition and sponsored by NikeGo - is just one of many happening around the state.

It is held in conjunction with the International Walk and Bike to School Day.
