Bike and Walk to School Week

Bike & Walk to School Week encourages students and their families to walk, scooter, skateboard or ride their bikes to and from school. We want to build a passion for active transportation at an early age by encouraging students to try it in a fun and supportive environment.

Bike and Walk to School Week takes place every year during the last week of May. 

How Bike and Walk to School Week works
School teams

All schools (even those not registered in this event) are encouraged to promote cycling, walking or other car-free methods of getting to school. Let us know if your school has been tracking students' trips, so we can add in your results and make your school eligible to win great prizes!

We have two Bike and Walk to School Week categories:

  • small school (under 400 students)
  • large school (over 400 students) 

The schools with the highest participation rate in each category will win a free bike and other great prizes! There are also a prize draws for additional kids bikes and any registered school is eligible regardless of their participation rate. Motivate your students and increase participation by trying some our great event ideas.

Register a school team

For more information about Bike and Walk to School Week and to register your school, contact Andrea Mackintosh at events@smarttrips.ca or by phone at 250-212-5523.
