Bike to School Week
A friendly reminder that it’s not too late to participate in Bike to School Week as part of Bike Month 2023! Grab your bike and gear up for a week full of adventure, exercise, and community spirit. Communities that embrace active school travel help their kids lead healthier lifestyles and improve their school performance, while also reducing traffic and pollution and making school zones safer for vulnerable road users. Also, being able to bike to school with friends is just plain fun!
Schools that sign up (https://www.bikemonth.ca/biketoschoolweek), will receive a follow-up email to a suite of resources and materials to help organize bike-friendly events in a school environment.
Halton Hills schools who sign up will also get free giveaways (which includes shirts, bike bells, drawstring bags, water bottles, while supplies last). This applies to those who sign up by end of the day today (May 25th)
Remember, it's never too late to embrace the joys of cycling and contribute to a more sustainable future. Sign up today for Bike to School Week and pedal your way to a fantastic experience!
Bike it to the Market
Bike it to the Market takes place on Fathers’ Day Weekend (Saturday June 17th) from 8am to noon. Ride your bike from anywhere to the Georgetown Farmers’ Market, leave your bike in our free secure bike parking and enjoy a pancake breakfast courtesy of the Georgetown Rotary Club and McDonald’s Restaurant. Breakfast is free to all who arrive by bike.
You can find us in the Main Street parking lot. Main Street from the Market south to Maple Avenue will be closed to vehicular traffic to make the ride safer for the whole family.
You will find children’s activities hosted by the Bike It Committee, the Library and Hey Neighbour. Or wander through the market to find great produce and one-of-a-kind products.
We also have volunteer opportunities for students and adults. For more information or to volunteer, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
As our spring seasons wind down, we want to take a moment to thank all of our coaches who dedicate their time to providing athletic opportunities for our students!
