Bike to Work Week

2016 Bike to School Registrations - Elementary & Middle Schools

2016 Bike to School Week is May 30 - June 5!

Check out this short “How to Bike to School Safely” video made by a grade 5 student in Smithers? It is REALLY well made and easy for kids to relate to and learn from. Teaching kids about the rules of the road and how to bike safely at a young age is very important for all road users and this video does a FANTASTIC job of it:
