The launch of the Kids CAN-BIKE Festival Month happens at St. Roch Separate

Hosted by the City of Toronto's Road and Trail Safety Ambassadors, the Kids
CAN-BIKE Festival introduces key bike handling skills to children who are

straight-line riding, shoulder checking and signaling, as well as braking and
This year's team of 20 Road and Trail Safety Ambassadors will be raising public
awareness about cycling safety and culture in the city, through training
programs, workshops and community events. The Ambassadors raise sensitivity to
the cycling environment by providing road and trail safety information for all
road and trail users -- cyclists, pedestrians, motorists, and in-line skaters.
CAN-BIKE courses are offered from June to September, throughout Toronto
