Youth en Route supports Wolves on Wheels – which meets all during the school year. Contact Mr. Scott for information.
Wolves on Wheels Bike Club
At Bishop McNally, teachers Mr. Scott and Mr. Lawrence have started a fantastic bike club that’s already making a difference in the community. Not only do they organize group rides and meetups to fix up bikes, but they also have a collection of bikes that students can borrow to participate.
We’re thrilled to support this initiative, which promotes healthy living, environmental sustainability, and community involvement. But we’re not stopping there.
To make it even easier for students to choose biking as a mode of transportation, we’ve installed a giant map on the wall. This map is designed to collect feedback from students about their routes to school, highlighting any broken connections or unsafe streets that need attention.
By working together, we can ensure every student has a safe, enjoyable, and sustainable route to school
Did you know that an average cyclist goes 20 km per hour? That means a 5 km ride, can take about 15 minutes – depending on route, terrain, and waiting for lights at intersections. It’s often shorter than the bus!
Do you fit in this distance range? Check out this school’s 4 km radius on the map to the left to find out!
We’ve provided some examples of routes from neighborhoods around your area. Please remember that safety is YOUR responsibility. Know your route, and only ride when you feel confident.
Always make sure to wear a helmet when riding!
Brand new infrastructure report for Bishop McNally High School!
Youth En Route worked very hard in collaboration with two graduate Urban Planning students, Nada Affan, and Adam Schwartz to create this report. It offers research findings and actionable recommendations for safer biking infrastructure throughout Calgary. Establishing the right infrastructure is key to creating safe and healthy environments for pedestrians and cyclists. We hope this report will put forward safe biking infrastructure ideas to get to school and spark conversations within communities to make such changes. To know more, read this post!
Theft video into a statement
Youth en Route knows that the risk of bike theft is a significant barrier to students choosing active travel. The risk of theft is the No. 3 reason for not riding to school, having an average of 60% of students telling us they are afraid of losing their bikes per school. We hope that this video will enlighten all Calgarians on the right ways of securing their bicycles.
