This video features students of Lawrence Grassi Middle School in Canmore, Alberta.  Many of the students, from grades 5 to 8, have biked to school the entire school year (2012-13), without missing a day. The video was recorded by Luke Raymond of Tourism Canmore as a contribution to Canmore’s first –ever Bike Month (June 1 – July 1). 

It is the desire of the kids to bike to school every day.  This has happened as part of the coming together of several important factors – a community that is focused on activity and health, great parent role models who encourage active, healthy lifestyles for their kids, school infrastructure support in numerous, centralized bike racks, school personnel support in a principle and physical education teachers who praise and reward kids for being active, and a municipal government that has invested in a great connected trails system.
