The Daily School Ride (DSR) is a pilot project open to grade 4-8 students at Bennetto Elementary School and St. Lawrence Catholic Elementary School. Younger students (Gr. 1-3) can still participate in the DSR but must be accompanied by an older sibling or parent while on the ride.
Part train. Part parade. Mostly just a safe and fun way to get to school. The Daily School Ride will look like a long line of students making their way to and from school, riding single file and following all the rules of the road. These rules allow cyclists to ride on the road and even take a full lane if necessary.
Leaders with reflective vests will be at the front and rear of the line to demonstrate safe riding. The 30kph speed limits in the North End make the neighbourhood a great location to try out the Daily School Ride.
TALK TO YOUR PRINCIPAL and Contact Us we'll make sure you get a permission form and get your house added to the route. You will get information about what time the "Bike Train" will be traveling past your house so you can join in.
DON’T MISS THE BUS! The DSR will run like any other school or city bus, if students are not at their stop or waiting along the route when the DSR rolls by the DSR won’t wait for them. Students who miss the DSR will have to ride to school by themselves or make alternate arrangements with parents to ride or walk to school.
