Bike to School

GoByBike to School October 21 - November 3, 2019!

Try biking to school this fall during GoByBike Weeks, October 21 - November 3, 2019. Many people think that it is not safe, nor enjoyable, to GoByBike in the fall and winter months; however, we want to share tips, tricks and gear ideas with you that will help make it more fun go GoByBike all year-round. Click here to download a school guide and learn more.

GoByBike Weeks is a fun, free event! Registered schools and registered riders can win awesome prizes. This is a free and fun celebration of using a bicycle for transportation rather than a motor vehicle.  This event is a chance for Schools throughout British Columbia to encourage and celebrate students and their families cycling to school.

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.
