   Project Overview

Our Grade Six class along with other students across Canada will have the opportunity to be part of history as they follow the progress of three bicycle teams, traveling across Canada. As the cyclists experience the culture, heritage, stories and languages of Canada, they will share their discoveries with students on this web site. Students will have the opportunity to watch, talk and be part of the whole experience, sharing their own visions of Canada.
