In partnership with CTC Jumpstart, Muskoka Children’s Foundation, and the Buckwallow Cycling Centre, a wonderful opportunity was created for some of the area’s most adventurous children. Over 55 students from 14 Muskoka Schools and 2 CKL Bike Clubs took part in Bikefest on Friday, June 16, 2017.
In 2014, TLDSB ran a pilot project for six schools. Last year, it was expanded the program to include one student from every elementary school across the system. It is a free event that provides 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 instill a desire for life-long participation in physical activity through fun and engaging activities with peers from across TLDSB. Take a look at the pics below!
