Bike to School Week 2018

Peel Bike to School Week 2018 best yet with 165 schools!

BikeBrampton visited four schools in Brampton, bringing a cycling message of safety and healthy activity. Students were reminded to check over their shoulders before changing lanes and turning, practicing safe REAR VIEW CYCLING.

BikeBrampton was awarded a grant by Ontario Ministry of Transportation‘s Road Safety Challenge to produce and display a Rear View Cycling poster.

Walk+Roll Peel Active Transportation team did a great job of encouraging participation with prizes and bike racks for the schools.

​This School Bus Lets Kids Bike to Class | Bicycling

As if cyclists needed another reason to be envious of France, the land famous for le Tour recently debuted a pedal-powered transportation system for children. Since the beginning of the year, about 30 students at Anatole France, a public elementary school in the town of Louviers, have been taking the S’Cool Bus—essentially a large tandem bike with electric assist—under the supervision of a “bus” driver.
