Bike EVERYWHERE Month

Bike to School Month 2020 

May 1 – May 31, 2020

This year, Bike to School Month is about 

BIKING EVERYWHERE! 

May 1 – May 31 2020

Riding bikes is a great way for kids (and grown-ups!) to get the activity they need to stay healthy.

This month gives everyone a little push to discover how using a bike can make everyday trips a joy! Biking isn’t just for getting to school. It’s great a great way to keep healthy (and safe) while getting exercise, getting groceries, or spending time with your friends. 

It’s a month for everyone to get outside and get movin’!

Bike Everywhere Month is a series of challenges, activities, outdoor adventures, and indoor learning. You can plan to celebrate for a day, week, or month using our online Activity Kit! 

Sign up your kids, family, classroom or school to participate!

What’s In it For me?

Feel good

Bikes + spring weather + quiet streets = exploring your neighbourhood at a safe distance from others.

Learn better

Homeschooling can be tough. With outdoor activity and fresh air, kids can focus when they need to be working indoors.

Lighten your impact

Now is the perfect time to leave the car at home more often, reducing emissions and air pollution!
