Bike to Work Week 2014: May 26 - June 1!

What a week!

The sun finally made an appearance this morning and there were many cyclists out on the streets, enjoying a dry commute. There were 5 different Celebration Stations around the valley today encouraging those who were going to work on two wheels, offering snacks and smiles…

There was coffee and cookies courtesy of the City of Courtenay Green Team at the Rotary Waterpark.

The CVRD were demonstrating the benefits of using the bike racks on the bus to beat the hills.

At Trail Bicycles there was delicious homemade muffins and coffee courtesy of Rewind Coffeebar and the last day of the week long events at the iHos Gallery and CFB Comox.

Later this afternoon there is the wrap up party at The Broken Spoke in downtown Courtenay starting at 4pm, with a BBQ and live music from the fantastic Shane Philip, why not stop in on your bike home from work?



Have a great ride home and don’t forget to enter your results to be entered into the free draw to win a Kona Dew commuter bike from Simon’s Cycles.

Hopefully this week will have encouraged you to give bike commuting a try and that you’ll make it part of your regular weekly routine throughout the year.
