What’s In it For me?
Bikes + spring weather + quiet streets = exploring your neighbourhood at a safe distance from others.
Schooling has been extremely tough this year. With outdoor activity and fresh air, kids can focus better when they need to be working indoors.
Lessen your impact
Now is the perfect time to leave the car at home more often, reducing emissions and air pollution!
What’s in the activity kit?
A set of activities to learn about transportation, experience the joy of riding bikes, and get outside to explore your neighbourhood. Learn new skills and have fun! You can do a section at a time, or mix and match! Do one, do some, or do them all.
The activities are in 5 categories: creative design, mapping, skill building, know your bike, and share your ride.
Here’s a peek at one of our activities:
Street ReDesign: Explore streets and urban design
Imagine what your street could look like if we used our street space in a different way!

How will I get the activities?

We don’t all have bikes. Can we participate?
Everyone is welcome to register! You don’t have to have a bike. Many of the activities will work well on scooters, skateboards, or even running!
We’re big fans of anything that gets kids moving in the community.
