2017 Bicycle Annapolis County Week - June 2-11

Bicycle Annapolis County We
We had a super successful Bicycle Week with nearly 100 students participating in Bike to School! It was a great way to kick-off the week and a great indication of how successful it would be.

Our Bike Rodeos attracted more than 100 riders! Wow! A huge thank you goes out to Rodena Renaud, RCMP Community Program Officer - Annapolis Detachment and Noah Scanlan, Town of Annapolis Royal Active Living Coordinator for all their assistance. And, to Chris Hiltz and members of the Cool Moves BMX Group who joined us this year to talk about the importance of wearing your safety gear and provided some amazing demonstrations.

The Picture Contest was a major success with hundreds of entries being submitted. A huge thank you goes out to Lori Whitman-Price and Murray Freeman for taking on the difficult task of judging the amazing submissions. A big shout out to Shawn's Sporting Excellence and Walmart - Digby for their partnership in providing the bikes awarded to our grand prize winners.

The Grand Prize winners were:

Serenity Cheeseman (BRES) (category 3-5)
Brooklyn Cress-Long (CRMS) (category P-2)

And, finally, a large THANK YOU to the elementary schools -  Clark Rutherford Memorial School; Champlain Elementary School; Bridgetown Regional Elementary School; Lawrencetown Consolidated School and Annapolis East Elementary School - whose support and assistance made this a fun, successful week for everyone!
