Wow… this sounds cool.
The City of Toronto is running the first ever (of many, hopefully) CAN-BIKE Bike Camp for Kids.
It’s a week-long program for kids ages 9-12 that includes a “Bike Hike” to Ward’s island and teaches essential skills like signaling, changing gears, avoiding road hazards and riding safely in their neighbourhood.
The program is heavily sponsored by community groups and community-minded businesses, and at the end of the course, the kids receive a new bike, helmet, lock and backpack.
