Green Action Centre is proud to bring back Bike Everywhere Month (BEM) for its third year! Running from May 1st-31, 2023, BEM is a free event that celebrates kids on bikes. This opportunity allows kids to stay mentally and physically healthy, explore communities and nature, and burn off energy from being indoors. It’s a great time to focus on getting more kids, families, parents, and teachers back outside to take advantage of the great spring weather. It’s time to pull out the helmets, explore the bike trails, and turn a few vehicle trips into sustainable and fun rides.
