Let’s get rolling! Join students and teachers across the province in celebrating Bike to School Week by using an active and/or sustainable mode of travel! The week beginning on the last Monday of May is the official Bike to School Week at the TDSB.
About the event:
Bike to School Week is an annual celebration of active transportation and schools can participate by encouraging their students to walk and/or roll to school, and by holding events both inside and outside the classroom to promote the benefits of active transportation. Bike to School Week builds on the success of Bike Month (last Monday in May until the end of June), a month-long campaign that encourages residents of the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA) to engage in active transportation through a series of events.
Active transportation includes walking, cycling, the use of mobility devices, and many other forms of human-powered transportation. Research shows that those who use active modes of transportation experience benefits to mental and physical health and well-being, are better prepared to learn and work and are more connected to their communities.
