Bike to School Week May 29 - June 4, 2017!

Bike to School Week is a free and fun week-long celebration of biking to school taking place May 29 - June 4, 2017. Bike to School Week is a chance for Schools throughout British Columbia to encourage and celebrate students and their families cycling to school. There are several ways in which you can get involved, if you live in Metro Vancouver you can register at HUB, if you live outside of Metro Vancouver you can register through Bike to Work BC. You can register as a school, a team or an individual!

Why be part of Bike to School Week?

Riding to school builds physical activity into kids' daily routine, supports in-class concentration, and provides a foundation for healthy lifestyles and a lifelong love of cycling. More students cycling to school reduces traffic congestion and makes your school a safer place. Plus, it's fun and also helps the environment!

Be a champion!

Regardless of how you choose to participate, every school or team needs a local champion (or Team Leader)! A champion (or Team Leader) can be a teacher, other staff members, parent or student!
