Bike To Work Week 2009

Here’s a recap of Bike to Work Week 2009…

======================

Wow what a week! Fantastic Final Friday morning in Comox

What a glorious morning to be on your bike, more than 100 folks pedaled by the 2 Celebration Stations in Comox this morning…

Next week it will be strange to not see Simon’s Cycles outside the iHos Gallery on the Comox/Dyke Road, thanks Simon and Patti for holding it down all week!

An average of 55 people passed by between 7 and 9am every day.

At the top of the hill, there was also a great turn out at Anderton Road and Comox Avenue, thanks to Black’s Cycle, The Eagle 97.3FM and all of our volunteers
 

Meanwhile at CFB Comox, the week wrapped up with a total of 113 people stopping by the tent on the way to work in the morning, there were also 64 ride bys.

Don’t forget to fill in your details and hand your Celebration Station Passport in at any bike shop or Recreation Centre in the Valley, next week we will be drawing random names from the hat and you could win a prize from our fantastic sponsors and supporters.

Hopefully riding your bike this week has encouraged you to continue doing so, Summer is just around the corner, what better way is there to get around?

Happy Bike to Work week 2009 Comox Valley, see you in 2010!
 

======================

Simply stunning turnout at Simms Park

What an amazing morning we had at Simms Park in Courtenay!



The sun was shining and 78 cyclists stopped in to the Celebration Station to get their passport stamped, pick up a snack and see what was going on under the pop up tent.

72 others rode by, not wishing to be late for work, or perhaps strangely… not wanting any free chocolate!

Thanks to Mountain City Cycle and The Broken Spoke Coffee House for offering mechanical advice, all our food sponsors, The Eagle 97.3 FM for once again broadcasting live and all of our volunteers.

No sooner had we packed up when a steady stream of young folks and their parents started to arrive, getting ready for the "Bike to the Playground" event at 10am…

25 youngsters did the ride from Simms Park, under the 5th Street bridge and all the way to the playground at Lewis Park, for a ribbon, cookie and juice in the sunshine.

Tomorrow is Bike to Work Day across Canada and the United States and the final day of Bike to Work week 2009 celebrations in the Comox Valley.

There are plenty of places to get your passport stamped around the valley;

You can stop in at any Recreation Centre or Bike Shop and look out for Celebration Stations from 7 - 9am at the iHos Gallery, CFB Comox and outside Black’s Cycle at Anderton Road and Comox Ave in Comox.

Don’t forget to fill in your details and hand it in, it doesn’t matter how many stamps you have, you could win a prize!

======================

A peaceful morning in Cumberland


Half way through the week already!

This morning at Peace Park in Cumberland, 12 stopped in and loaded up on chocolate, muffins, coffee, granola bars and other goodies, whilst another 20 unfortunately didn’t have time, so carried on pedaling…

Another glorious morning, an amazing 70 folks went by bike to CFB Comox, 38 stopped in to pick up a passport, sign in, have a coffee and snack, whilst 32 others kept on riding….

The Celebration will continue all week, stop by any morning and get your passport stamped, outside the gates at 19 Wing.
