The observance is celebrated by the United Nations and they emphasize how important it is for cities and towns to have proper infrastructure for the citizens who wish to cycle or walk on the streets. The global awareness day occurs every year on June 3rd.

“Happiness is feeling the wind on your cheek.”

We are short on bikes!  Please donate your used bike or consider a donation of $300 so we can purchase a new bike to give to a kid.
Help us fulfil our goal of 2700 bikes given to very happy kids.

You Can Ride 2

The Learn to Ride program is an evidence-based cycling course designed to teach children with coordination challenges or other special needs, how to ride a two-wheeled bicycle without training wheels. Over the course of six sessions, children with no previous success at riding a bicycle, develop the skills and confidence to ride unassisted.  

The program accepts children 8 years old and up regardless of diagnosis (or lack thereof), and has a very high success rate.  A referral by a person familiar with motor development and of the program (e.g. school physio or occupational therapist) is required.  Courses are also offered in several other communities across the province.
