Family with Bikes

Bike Week Challenge

The Bike Week Challenge is a five-day contest for students and families to promote confident cycling.

Each day of the week has activities to learn how to check the bike and helmet for safety, learn the rules of the road, ride along a route to school, and more. Prizes are raffled off at the end of the week.

Bike Week is offered for elementary and middle schools upon request. Contact Peggy Clark for more information about how you can host this at your school
