Bike to School Week 2018


Across Canada - in Vancouver, Halifax, Montreal, Calgary, Ottawa – students are celebrating cycling in May and June. In the United States, the National Bike to School Day was established in 2012 and has grown to involve over 2,600 schools.

In the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area, Bike to School Week was first celebrated in 2015 as a coordinated campaign. In 2017, 421 schools regisitered events and more than 25,000 students participated! Find out more in the campaign report.

In 2018, with the support of the Ontario Active School Travel program, Bike to School Week is being promoted to schools across Ontario!

Bike to School Week expands on the success of Bike Month, and on inspiring initiatives among local schools, school boards and community partners to encourage students to “walk and roll” to school:

  • In Mississauga, high schools joined in the Bike Month launch event at Celebration Square every year from 2006 to 2014.
  • York Region hosted their inaugural bike summit in 2014 and Youth Bike Summit in 2016. Over 3,300 students received bike safety training in 2015!
  • In 2015, City of Burlington Transportation Services staff surveyed students at all 10 Burlington high schools. Of 609 respondents, 45% said that they frequently ride a bicycle; 41% said that availability of trails/pathways is very important, and 30% said that availability of on-road bike lanes is very important.
  • The Toronto District School Board declared Bike to School Day for the first time in 2014, sparking interest in a GTHA-wide campaign.

Who we are

Bike to School Week is organized by the Events Subcommittee of the Active and Sustainable School Transportation Regional Hub of Metrolinx, the Regional Transportation Authority. The subcommittee is comprised of staff from Metrolinx and its program Smart Commute, school boards, Public Health units, municipal Transportation Services departments, and non-governmental organizations. CultureLink, an NGO involved with providing cycling programming to schools, is contracted to support the work of the subcommittee. The campaign is affiliated with Bike Month, which is coordinated by Cycle Toronto.
