Greetings ward advocates - I coordinate the Bike to School Project with Cycle Toronto, CultureLink and our partners. Many times I've been asked by cycling advocates about how to "involve students" or "connect with schools".
To help answer this question, I've worked with Jared to organize an event on Thursday Feb 27 at CultureLink (Dundas West and Bloor). Our presenters are from neighbourhoods across Toronto. They will share stories about successful collaborations that advance cycling and we'll have time for breakout groups as well to plan and brainstorm in a more focused way. All the details are here:

Hope to see some of you there!
P.S. I know it's the same date and time as the Argyle meeting - unfortunately we had booked this long before that meeting was publicly announced. Go Argyle contraflow! Did you know that students at Central Commerce Collegiate wrote letters and deputed for the Shaw Street contraflow lane? It all helps!
