Bike to School

Part of our core mission is to provide cycling instruction and events for Elementary, Middle, and Secondary schools. Our Bike to School program is based on the Bike Right standard and offers courses and activities for Grades 3 and up, as well as promoting and growing Metro Vancouver’s Bike to School Week.

Partnering up with our Bike to School team allows your school the opportunity to:

  • Promote cycling as a fun, healthy & social way to exercise, be independent, and get around. 
  • Offer an avenue to build and increase cycling skills.
  • Take an active role in promoting bike knowledge, including safe and responsible cycling for transportation.

Since the 2020-21 school year, we are pleased to offer two online courses to complement our two existing Bike to School curriculums; aptly named Learn2Ride Online and Ride the Road Online. This has created the opportunity to deliver courses as Standard Programs (in-person and outdoors), as well as Blended Programs (online and outdoors)Learn2Ride Online is uniquely open and freely available to all beginner riders of British Columbia.

OUR PROGRAMS

 


Learn2Ride


An introductory course for grades 3-6 that gets students excited about urban cycling and introduces them to basic road rules and safe cycling concepts. Taught by trained instructors over 2 days, students learn through classroom activities and on-bike skills practice on the school ground. Take a look at this program in action here!


Ride The Road


Targeted to grades 6-8, Ride the Road introduces students to the freedom and responsibilities of cycling in an urban setting. Taking place over 4-5 days, this course explores basic bike maintenance, road safety, and culminates in a small group neighbourhood road ride in the school’s community.


Everyone Rides Grade 4-5


An exciting cycling education program targeting all grade 4 & 5 students in Metro Vancouver, Kelowna, and the Capital Regional District (Victoria). With the continued support from the BC Active Transportation Strategy, our goal is to implement this program province-wide!

In our Bike to School programs, we provide opportunities for all children to be able to experience our activities on bikes. Thanks to a grant from the GoodLife Kids Foundation, we are able to offer a variety of adapted bikes to support those with a variety of needs and mobility issues. These bikes ensure that all children, regardless of their abilities, can participate in a safe, comfortable, and enjoyable way. Since joining our fleet in 2017, these bikes have allowed many young riders in Metro Vancouver to progress in their love and appreciation of cycling.
