Everyone Rides Grade 4-5

Elevation Outdoors has paired with HUB Cycling to provide the Everyone Rides Grade 4-5 program to schools in the Okanagan, with a focus on SD 23! Our goal is to help provide British Columbia elementary students with skills, confidence and the opportunity to learn to ride their bikes to and from school. Cycling education for elementary students helps:

  • Climate action, active transportation, and healthy communities
  • Provide a safer way for students to get daily physical exercise and move within their community during the COVID-19 pandemic
  • To raise a generation of sustainable transportation users and safe road users

More about Everyone Rides Grade 4 – 5

Universal cycling education in schools is an effective way to raise a generation of sustainable transportation users and safe road users. Elevation Outdoors is proud to be a part of supporting every child in receiving cycling education before finishing elementary school.  This creates a systemic culture of cycling that permeates student, parent and teacher lifestyles and transportation choices.  HUB Cycling is excited to work with the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure to make universal cycling education a reality for British Columbia youth.

The Everyone Rides Grade 4-5 program is heading into its 3rd year with the goal of reaching 60 public schools and over 6,000 grade 4 and 5 students in Metro Vancouver, the Capital Regional District, Kelowna, Rossland and surrounding areas in spring 2022.
