Gearing up for Spring Bike to School Week 2013: May 27 – 31

As Bike to School Week approaches, HUB and HASTe are excited to get more kids and school staff riding to school and to celebrate what Metro Vancouver schools already do to support cycling.

To participate in this friendly competition, just designate a School Team Leader and register your school online at: www.hastebc.org/btsw

We'll provided you with all the resources you need to be part of this great initiative and the participating students will get a chance to win some great prizes, have fun, and get active!

Okanagan schools can register with smartTrips!

Save the date!

It's never to early to start prepping for iWalk. This Fall, International Walk to School Week is happening October 7-11, with the big day falling on October the 9th. iWalk month, of course, is October. Mark your calendar!

Attention Surrey Schools: Register to participate in the Walk N' Roll Challenge during Environment Week (June 3-7) and your school could win the Golden Shoe: hastebc.org/walknroll

Last Chance for Idle Free?

Our supplies of Idle Free School signs are running a bit low. And we're not entirely sure when we'll have more. Don't want to miss out? Order up to four signs for your school today!

That's it for another edition. If you'd like more information and resources for bringing sustainable transportation ideas, education or action into your school, visit the HASTe Website or contact us at info@hastebc.org or 604.347.7704
