Let’s get rolling! – Active commuting and family biking from birth to pre-teen
You have 1, 2, 3… 6 kids?
Wondering about biking with your little or no so little ones?
There are options for you to get active, be outside and make a change for the environment. No need for extra time, it is all about rethinking your commute.
This workshop will cover some of the benefits of active commuting, talk about safety, budget, gear and local resources. It will be of interest to those who want to take the family for a weekend spin as well as those contemplating a full transition from 4 to 2 wheels.
Noémie Boulanger-Lapointe is a mother of two and an avid bike commuter. When baby number two arrived, it seemed like her entire maternity leave would be spent stuck in a car. That was until she discovered family biking: it was a game changer! Inspired by the transformative experience of moms here and abroad, she decided to apply her research and presentation skills to share about family biking and how it can contribute to personal health, climate and community building. When not at home with the kids, Noémie is a researcher studying the impact of climate change on vegetation and how Indigenous Knowledge can inform our relation to the environment.
