GoByBike to School

GoByBike to School encourages students and their families to 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.

How it works
School teams

All schools are encouraged to promote cycling to school. One Team Leader from each school registers the team, and anyone can join. Either the Team Leader can enter results for their team members, or team participants can login and enter their own results. Riders who started out solo can join a team anytime. 

We have two GoByBike 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 prize draws for additional kids bikes and any registered school is eligible regardless of their participation rate.

Register a school team

For more information about GoByBike to School and to register your school, visit GoByBike or email events@smarttrips.ca.

School staff participation

Teachers and other staff are encouraged to form a GoByBike team and participate, too. Visit the GoByBike webpages to learn more.

Tracking sheets

Visit GoByBike for Schools to download tracking sheets for your school and record trips that students choose to Go By Bike. Establish it as a morning ritual when the students arrive. Adding their KM's, ticking the box, or putting a sticker on a poster often is a highlight as such. At the end of GoByBike, team leaders tally results and enter them online. If you need help please contact terri-lynn@gobybikebc.ca. Make sure to enter your results and your team will be entered into the draw to win one of many great prizes.
