New Westminster school sees BC's first Bike Pool
November 1, 2012
New Westminster saw the first ever large-scale Bike Pool in BC this fall. Hosted by Glenbrook Middle School and supported by the City of New West, 50 students biked to and from school with teachers, community volunteers, and HUB staff leading the way. Students were grouped up by neighbourhood, and gathered more and more students on the ride to school. Community links were made, and the trips focused on fun and safety. The kids had a great time, and parents saw a lot of value in the week-long experience:
"[my child] has had an awesome time biking this week, great learning experience, really appreciate it."
"Thank you for putting this together and getting the kids that would not normally ride to ride"
Glenbrook's Bike Pool was a great success and HUB is looking forward to continuing to work with this school to support its growing cycling culture.
