For some, the idea of biking to work is attractive but also a bit intimidating. What’s the best route, what to wear… and who else will join me?
That’s why there’s Bike to Work Week each spring and fall! It’s the perfect opportunity to try out cycle commuting in a fun, friendly and rewarding way.
This spring Bike to Work Week is May 25-31 and registration is free at BikeHUB.ca.
When you create your account and log your bike trips, you become eligible to win over $15,000 in amazing prizes, including a trip for 2 to Europe! The more you bike, the greater your chances of winning.
To cheer you on and help you out along the way, TravelSmart and HUB are sponsoring over 50 celebration stations across Metro Vancouver, where you can load up on free coffee, snacks, maps, bike service, and encouragement!
You can register for Bike to Work Week on your own but it’s even more fun with a team of coworkers! Get together with some of your colleagues and register as a team for a chance to win extra prizes.
HUB provides tons of resources to help promote Bike to Work Week at your workplace.
Use the TravelSmart map to find bike routes around your home and workplace.
Keep in mind that you don’t have to bike the whole way and you don’t have to bike every day. The important thing is to get your body moving and have fun!
Don’t forget to stop by the FREE Bike to Work Week Wrap-Up Party and BBQ at Creekside Park on Friday, May 29th from 4pm-7pm.
