Over 150 schools in Peel Region registered for Bike to School Week 2017 - more than TRIPLE the number of schools involved in 2016! They joined over 400 schools across the GTHA who showed how much fun it can be to bike to school. Parents, school staff, school public health nurses, police officers, and other community partners came together to engage the students with innovative and exciting activities around cycling. The Region of Peel provided resources, including bike bells, helmets, stickers, posters, customized walking and biking maps, and more to support the schools who participated.
