Bike to School Week is May 27 - June 2, 2019!

Sponsored in part by BCAA, Bike to Schoool Weeks is a free and fun celebration of biking to school. The spring event runs May 27 - June 2, 2019. This event is a chance for Schools throughout British Columbia to encourage and celebrate students and their families cycling to school. HUB Cycling organizes the event in Metro Vancouver and schools in that area should register through bikehub.ca/btsw while schools in the rest of BC can register here. Need help? Contact terri-lynn@biketowork.ca.

Why participate?

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! Download the participation tracker to help keep track of your team.
