Bike to School

Bike to School Week May 28 - June 1, 2018!

Bike to School Week is a free and fun week-long celebration of biking to school taking place May 28 - June 1, 2018. Bike to School Week is a chance for Schools throughout British Columbia to encourage and celebrate students and their families cycling to school. You can register through 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, staff member, parent, or student!

  • Elementary/Middle School Teachers, School Principals or Parents/PAC
