Bike to School Week 2016

Bike to School Week is a celebration across the GTHA to encourage cycling to and from school. This year’s Bike to School Week ran from May 30th to June 3rd.


  1. 52 schools in Peel Region registered for Bike to School Week in 2016 - more than double the number of schools involved in 2015! They joined over 300 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.
  2. During Bike to School Week, surveys done by participating schools showed that bike mode share increased to 7% throughout Peel Region, with thousands of students biking to school. Peel also led the way in the GTHA with over 90% of schools responding to a post-survey to evaluate the success of the program.
