SPECIAL ISSUE! *Women & Families* Commute with your kids The morning commute can be a hectic time for families. Commuting togetherhttp://greenactioncentre.ca/content/commute-with-your-kids/by bus, bike or on foot one day a week can add adventure, physical activity, and quality family time to this busy time of day.
Getting to school Want to bike or take the bus to work, but also need to drop your kids off at school? Green Action Centre’s Active and Safe Routes to Schoolhttp://greenactioncentre.ca/2012/and-the-winner-is/program offers a number of innovative solutions to improve morning and afternoon drop-off and pick-up at your children’s school. Their School Travel Planning program recently won a Manitoba Planning Excellence Awardhttp://greenactioncentre.ca/2012/and-the-winner-is/ .
Bike with your family [image: Nathan Wild and son Graham]Having a hard time finding information on biking with your family? We’ve compiled a list of great resources on biking http://greenactioncentre.ca/content/bike-with-your-family/ while pregnant, cycling with babies and toddlers, planning your route, teaching kids the rules of the road, and much more.
Women as "canaries"
From "Moon Cycle" bike maintenance classes to "Wine, Wenches and Wrenches"
events for learning to ride with safety and confidence (while avoiding helmet hair!), more women-focused courses are being offered. Why is it important to get more women cycling for transportation?http://greenactioncentre.ca/content/women-and-cycling/
Cycling fashion sense Just because you’re on a bike doesn’t mean you have to look like a Tour de France rider. Step away from the spandex and embrace your flair for fashion. Check out our quickie style guidehttp://greenactioncentre.ca/content/cycling-fashion-sense/on everything from funky helmets and bike seats to baskets and skirt garters, and lots in between like dressy shoes and colourful bike bells.
Cycling infrastructure Don't know the difference between a cycle track and bike boulevard or a bike lane versus a sharrow? Join the club! But our handy photo guidehttp://greenactioncentre.ca/content/winnipeg-cycling-infrastructure-deciphered/will help you decipher Winnipeg's cycling infrastructure and find a route that suits your comfort level.
