Bike to Work Week 2010 kicks into gear on Monday May 31

If you want to give biking to work a try, Bike to Work Week 2010 is next week: Monday, May 31 to Sunday June 6!

Sign up a team from your school or work for the week, and you might win prizes for participation and distance travelled. (There’s bike gear, gift certificates, and free bikes on offer!)

And watch for commuter stations around the Lower Mainland, with free coffee, snacks, and more prizes, plus mechanics to tune up your bike if needed. (Here’s a look at the TransLink commuter station in Metrotower II from 2008.)

This year, Bike to Work Week is also having its first ever awards reception on June 10! Buy a ticket and you can celebrate your biking success with other cycling folks.

I cycled in Bike to Work Week last year (and I’ll do it again this year!), and here’s some handy 2009 posts to help you prep for the 2010 edition:

If you’re just getting started, check out a VACC bike workshop, and try mapping your route on UBC’s handy cycling route planner, which I profiled in 2009.
