New Harbord CI Bike Infrastructure Project Promotes Sustainable Transportation

New Harbord CI Bike Infrastructure Project Promotes Sustainable Transportation

Initiative Launched on International Walk/Roll to School Day

Tuesday, October 10, 2017
Categories: Great Things, Happenings @ TDSB, School Web Stories

Students and staff at Harbord Collegiate Institute celebrated International Walk/Bike to School Day on Wednesday, October 4 with the grand opening of a bike infrastructure project funded by Live Green Toronto.

This project was a collaborative partnership between Harbord, Culture Link/Bike to School, and the TDSB Sustainability Office. The project includes bike racks, a bike mechanic station and foot pump (a first for a TDSB school), as well as school ground greening.

The event began with a visit from students riding bikes as part of their Grade 9 Phys. Ed. cycling education program at Harbord. At the grand opening TDSB Trustee for Ward 10 Ausma Malik spoke about the importance of healthy, active, and sustainable transportation to and from school, noting that this involves “seven generations thinking.”

Harbord’s Principal Vince Meade encouraged students to continue their “activism for cycling infrastructure both at school and in the community.” This call to action was echoed by Grade 12 student Claudia M. who stated “whether I’m biking to school for field hockey practice at 7:30 in the morning or riding home from work at 10:00 at night, the Bloor bike lane keeps me safe from cars.”

The celebration wrapped-up with a bike repair lesson using the new stand facilitated by the Bike to School Project.
