Kudos and Thank-You

Freedom Friday Ride. Walk. Fly. Whatever.  

What an amazing Freedom Friday we had! 
It was a great turnout and our DJ, Christian from Tall Music, was awesome.
Hope you all had a wonderful time and got to enjoy a cup of coffee, donated generously, again, by Starbucks from Edgemont Village. Jordan Miller came by with his cargo bike - to add further inspiration to active transportation!

Thank you to both DNV Mayor Richard Walton and Councillor Matthew Bond for coming and riding their bikes to Canyon Heights.

Also, we were very excited to have NVSDCBC Radio Canada and North Shore News doing stories to showcase our initiative. The Web Story that CBC did today is attached for you all to read and it also includes the radio interview link done this morning. There will be a TV Story that will be airing on Sunday April 24th – if you miss it we will send you a link for it next week.

Thank You to North Vancouver RCMP and the Community Policing for monitoring traffic for us. Over 40 drivers were clocked at speeds exceeding the posted 30km/hr in the School Zone.

As a friendly reminder – please ONLY use the School Drop Off/Pick Up Zone for that purpose only – there is NO PARKING there during posted times
