Many of you may have noticed a large entourage of students riding their bikes up the highway on route to Acwsalcta School during the week of May 25-29th.  We joined the community for Bike Week and encouraged all students to jump on their pedals and bike to school.  At least 60 bikes were lined up in the bikes racks every day!  To kick start the week, the school hosted the its 4th Annual Bike Rodeo on Monday, May 25th.  RedShreds bike shop from Williams Lake faithfully sends down bike mechanics every year to tune students’ bikes up for summer, ensuring that everyone has the necessary parts to safely get around for the summer.  A huge thanks to Cory Brunelle and Ian Davidson for coming all the way down to Bella Coola to work like dogs under the summer sun in the Acwsalcta parking lot, these guys are wizards behind a bike stand – between the two of them they fixed close to 60 bikes in one day.  The afternoon of the bike rodeo saw groups of students going through bike stations, one of them being led by Constable Mark of the RCMP, teaching students about road safety.  The students played on bike stunts and enjoyed races, and the day rounded out with a big group ride around 4 Mile.  Acwsalcta School would also like to thank Constable Ed Wells from the RCMP for his involvement in Bike Week and for safely escorting the students riding to and from downtown each day.
