CHICAGO (WLS) -- Monday is National Bike to School Day but with kids having their classes cancelled for the remainder of the school year, the annual event has a different look to it.
In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, "Bike to School" organizers are asking participants to share pictures on social media using the hashtag #biketoschoolday.
According to the organization, Illinois had 83 schools participate in last year's program.

Monday, kids are asked to decorate their sidewalks, windows or even their own bikes with signs of encouragement for their neighbors.
The first-ever National Bike to School Day took place on May 9, 2012, in coordination with the League of American Bicyclists' National Bike Month.
