Bike to School

 

Register for Bike to School

Riding to school builds physical activity into a child’s 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 helps the environment. What’s not to love?!
 

Be a Champion (a.k.a. Team Leader):

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 member, parent, or student! Only one team leader needs to register your team. The team leader can log kilometers cycled for your entire team/class/school. You can have as many teams participate as you like. Some schools create classroom teams, others create grade teams, and others create one team for the entire school. To log kilometers for a school team, the team leader enters the total number of team members and the total kilometers cycled for the entire week.
