Please click on the video below to view our visit with the San Mateo Police Department and police escort to Beresford Park.

If you have two feet and can use them to get to school (by bike, scooter, roller skates, or walking), we invite you to join the newly organized Carey Biped Club. Even if you can’t commute regularly by non-motorized vehicle, you are still welcome to join us.  Our purpose is to raise awareness about alternative means of commuting and to create a fun community of students and parents who would like to incorporate it into their lives.

The Carey Biped Club will meet once a month to commute to school together from Beresford Park. After school, we will meet briefly in the courtyard before biking to Beresford Park for snacks and playtime.  Parents/caregivers should plan to attend the brief meetings and bike with your child.

Everyone is welcome to join in any of these events.  If you live too far to bike to school, consider loading your bikes onto your car and driving to Beresford Park to join our group walk/ride to school. And even if you can’t walk/ride with us, feel free to join our meetings.  We have many interesting speakers and topics planned.


We will have a group ride from Beresford Park to school on the morning of each meeting. Meet at 8am under the big tree between the swings and play structure. Please RSVP with your interest and/or questions to:

We look forward to seeing you!
