Calgary Bike to School Day 2015 – June 2, 2015
We are inviting all schools in the city to take part in Calgary Bike to School Day 2015 on June 2. The event was piloted last year at Simon Fraser School and was very successful with 204 students riding 10-12 km to school in the rain!
The purpose of the event is to get kids moving and to think about alternative methods of transportation. The day is very easy to run and all interested schools will be given a detailed information package on how the event was run at Simon Fraser School last year.
Currently, 50 schools within the CBE and one private school have agreed to participate and more schools are signing up daily. We want more, we want your school to sign up and participate! Many of the local bike stores have donated prizes for our event and any student who participates will be placed in a draw for these prizes. The grand prize for the event will be a new bike!
Have a look at our website, which was designed by Dylan Leclair at www.calgarybiketoschool.weebly.com or follow the event on Twitter @yycbike2school.
If you would like to sign up to participate, please give me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
