LIFECycle’s all-new High School program aims at getting students out on their bikes visiting their community’s best green businesses. LIFECycle targets environmentally conscious businesses to partner with neighbouring schools, showcasing their business model.
Students ride in small groups for distances of less than 8km to the facility, with approximately 1 hour spent on location, during which time staff from the facility showcase their business.
Students will be given 30 minutes of bike safety instruction before taking to the streets. Routes to the facility will use bike paths or designated bike lanes as much as possible. Engagement with Municipalities for Best Routes Planning will also be included.
New businesses are always being added. Those currently being considered include:
Car Share centres
Bike Share operations
BC Hydro locations
First Nations locations
Bat and other Rehabilitation centres
Vegetarian cooking facilities
Public Transit centres
Fire protection departments
Aquarium release centres
