Let’s Bike Events

Let’s Bike is a community bike event for kids and their families, which takes place in parks, schools or community centers. The event is staged as an outdoor fair, with stations that kids progressively work through to learn about bike equipment, safety and handling skills. These stations could include helmet fittings, ABC bike checks, bike skill simulations, bike playground features and more! 

Fostering in kids an excitement and fun around bike skills and safety helps us build confident, safe young cyclists. We believe that children can become more independent citizens of their communities when they possess the knowledge and skills of a comfortable, competent cyclist. 

Let’s Bike also gives families the chance to be out in their communities, engaging with others, and having fun all while learning important road safety skills.

Bringing Let’s Bike to you

Let’s Bike is run as a 3 hour, drop-in style event and is typically free to families who wish to attend. Ask us about other cycling education resources that you can use at home or in the classroom. Get in touch with us for additional event details and fee range.

They have been an important component of cycling education programs run through Active Travel initiatives.
