TSM Sponsors Bike to School

Bike to School Day 2013Bike to School is run by a volunteer committee of cycling enthusiasts, with support from The W.R.E.N.C.H., Green Action Centre, Manitoba Public Insurance, The North West Company & Giant Tiger, Tire Stewardship Manitoba and Canadian Automobile Association.

2013 is the pilot year, and will see six schools participating in May. More than 1000 students ages Kindergarten to Grade 11 will learn about cycling by taking part in activities ranging from cycling demonstrations, route finding, bike polo, bike obstacle courses, group rides and mechanics training. Most events will be held at the school, although Maples Collegiate will be running their Bike to School programme at Assiniboine Park. Bike to School has also assisted in providing bike cages, bike racks, helmets and locks at some participating schools, and offered training for teachers through MPI’s Cycling Champion Course. Organizers hope to have more schools participate in the future, with the goal of inspiring cycling education and programming in schools year-round.
