Bike to School Week

May 28 – June 1, 2018
Bike, scoot, or walk your school commute – just don’t use the car!

Get your bike tires pumped up and ready for BTSW! This week is all about encouraging Lynn Valley families to ride, roll or walk to school. It is going to be another massively exciting active transportation event.

If you’re interested in volunteering please contact Trina Sporer.


What do I need to participate in BTSW?

  • Bike
  • Helmet
  • Bike lock
  • Rain or shine attitude!

Don’t have a bike?
Ask friends or neighbours if you can borrow a bike for the week. You may be surprised how much you love riding!


Where do I put my bike?

Bikes may be left outside in any of the five bike racks or they can be locked to the east and west-facing chain-link fence surrounding the gravel field. Do not lock bikes to the north-facing chain-link fence and please obey any ‘no parking’ signs for your bike as we would like to ensure safe access in case of emergency.

The school is not responsible for the safe-keeping of bikes and accessories so ensure bikes are locked up.

What is the Family Meet-up Ride?

A parent volunteer will be at the Lower Seymour Conservation Reserve’s gazebo on Wednesday night at 6:00 pm to welcome everyone to the Family Ride. Ride as far and as long as you like on the paved Lower Seymour Conservation Reserve trail.

All children must be accompanied by an adult. This is not a supervised ride.

How can I win prizes?

The school will be tallying daily active transportation results to determine which classes had the highest active transportation participation. A winning class from both Intermediate and Primary grades will be awarded a class-wide prize. In addition, the class which raises the most pledge money will win a pizza party.

Grand prize draws will be held on the last day of BTSW. A random winner will be chosen from all those that raised over $25 in pledges. In addition, a lucky parent will win a prize drawn from the names of all parents that rode to school during BTSW.


Please email with any questions you may have or if you would like to help out with this fantastic, fun PAC sponsored event.
