Lyndon Chiasson

Lyndon is 14 years old and lives in Yellowknife, NT. Here’s how he’s taking the lead:

“I work with my friends to build ramps and jumps at the bike park and make sure they are fun for the older kids but still safe for the little kids.  I like to look after the area to keep it clean and safe. I learned that if I set an example by wearing my helmet and looking after the park then others will follow and do the same. I like to be outside and active and I always feel good when I do. I want to tell other kids to go biking, wear your helmet, clean up after yourselves, and take your headphones out if you are biking on the roads.”
