It’s Bike to Work Week everyone! Yes, it’s that time of the year to leave the car keys at home and join your colleagues at work or school on a ride.

If you’re not familiar with the week, we’ve written a lot on it before. Just peruse the cycling category on the blog and you’ll find more than enough info.

You can also go to the source of the week and check out all the great info on the HUB Bike to Work website. From their website you can map your route(s) for the week, log your commutes each day, join a team and find out where the celebration stations are located. These stations are great places to stop during your commute and each one is different. Some stations offer free coffee, snacks, bike tune ups and prizes the whole week long!

Every year our friends at TravelSmart join in the fun and help out at celebration stations. Make sure you stop at one of these stations, chat with TravelSmart representatives and maybe get something fun and useful bike stuff to take home! Here are the locations where you’ll find TravelSmart staff:
