The activities are in 5 categories. You can do a section at a time, or mix and match! Do one, do some, or do them all.

Creative Design & THINKING

Step 1. Go for a bike ride.

Step 2. Complete the checklist.

Step 3. Fill out the letter template.

Step 4. Send it!

Street ReDesign

Think about how the space on your street could be used differently. Redesign a street! 

Design your own bike

What do you want your bike to look like? What about your helmet? Print off these sheets to design your own bikes, helmets, bike path sign, and more!

Don’t have a printer? Then enjoy the freedom of a blank canvas. Draw and colour your own bike!

Love 30

What is the speed limit for cars where you live, play, and ride? What “safe” means to drivers is very different from what safe means to children as pedestrians and cyclists.

Neighbourhoods must be built to feel inclusive for all members of our society.

Glide to Ride

Go from 4 wheels to 2!

Taking the leap to riding a bike without training wheels can be daunting. Learn a safe and simple way to start riding a bike on 2 wheels. First you want to learn to glide, then you’ll start to ride!

Three easy steps:
Step 1. Remove the pedals, so you can use your bike like a pushbike. Sit on the bike seat, and walk your bike. This helps the rider get comfortable with controlling their bike. Once you have some practice walking, go to step 2.

Step 2. Now you get to glide – try coasting. Sit on the seat, and start walking your bike forward. Then lift your feet in the air! How far can you coast? Once you’re comfortable coasting and can do it well, move on to the third step.

Step 3. Put the pedals back on. Get on your bike, take a few walking steps to get some speed, then put your feet on the pedals and start pedaling.

Check out our activity sheet with photos and videos that show you how.

You can also watch the full video from Family Fun Pack. 

Let Grow Project

Encourage you kids and students to try something new! Build skills, confidence and resiliency with healthy and safe independence. 

Allowing children to do something new on their own can be scary, but also rewarding. Let go so they can grow! Here is a simple project for kids of all ages: Let Grow. Together, you and your child pick one (or a few) things they want to do on their own.
