A brand new community challenge has started in Cochrane. The Cochrane Community Bike Challenge began June 1, 2020, and for the entire month, the challenge will feature various tasks and content all in the name of being active and participating in the Cochrane community.

Jaclyn Laliberté, Community Initiator for the Cochrane Community Bike Challenge says that it’s all about the community. “It's a community-led initiative looking to build connections through movement, creativity, and fun. We want to get kids, families, and any member of our community out on their bikes and being active and allowing them to connect virtually during this time.”

“It’s a month-long initiative with weekly challenges, there will be interactive videos, local content, and a lot of different ways to participate.” 

Laliberté says they wanted to start the challenge off with something that everyone can participate in “We're kicking off week one with a colouring contest. We really wanted to focus on inclusivity, as well as diversity. We think that this is a great way to build community and make sure that everybody wants to participate.”
