It is Bike to Work Week in many North American cities including Vancouver this week. Too bad about the rain. Gear up properly and stay safe out there.
Not only is cycling a healthy and an environmentally-friendly commuting option, you can also enjoy some of the commuter station locations this week while commuting on two wheels. For a map and more details of locations of the stations in Vancouver go to biketoworkmetrovan.ca . Enjoy free refreshments, prizes, bike tune ups on bike routes during the whole week.
More and more, workplaces have accommodated their employees with biking to work with access to a secure bike rooms, showers, etc. Perhaps this is something that your workplace has already embraced.
It is Bike to Work Week in Vancouver starting today, May 30th through to June 5th.
Not only is cycling a healthy and an environmentally-friendly commuting option, you can also win prizes for commuting on two wheels. Register your team of co-workers online at biketoworkmetrovan.ca for your chance to win. There will also be free coffee, snacks, prizes and parties on bike routes the whole week.
My employer allows me to dress a bit more casually on my bicycle commuting days. Perhaps this is something that your workplace has already embraced.
As I strap on my bike helmet for my commute to work this Wednesday, I will be wearing my Canucks shirt to work to support the home team. Go Canucks Go!
