In partnership with CTC Jumpstart, Muskoka Children’s Foundation, and Buckwallow Cycling Centre, a wonderful opportunity was created for some of the areas neediest children. Bikefest 2015 took place on Friday, June 12, 2015.
In 2014, TLDSB ran a Bikefest pilot project for six schools. This year, we expanded the program to include one student from every elementary school across the system. It was a free event that provided an opportunity to increase physical activity, student wellness, bike safety knowledge, and trail riding skills.
Bikefest is an experiential outdoor education event and works to instil a desire for life-long participation in physical activity through fun and engaging activities with peers from across TLDSB.
