June 5th is Clean Air Day!
No Problem, I Ride to Work Now!
Did you know?
We use our air every two seconds to breathe, and although we can’t see it, it is as important as our drinking water. The main threat to clean air in our region is polluting emissions from cars and trucks, so riding your bike is one of the best things you can do to maintain good air quality!
Clean Air Day is a fun way to continue your commitment to protecting the environment and the air we breathe. Many communities in Canada have Clean Air Day activities. Visit this website to find out how you become part of the solution:www.cleanairday.com.
This years BTWW wrap up BBQ was a great way to celebrate BTWW. Everyone enjoyed our visit, the food and the prizes.
The 2012 Bike to Work Week Coordinators, Marcia Dick and James Gordon!
Wow, what a Morning…. 126 cyclists signed in this morning, the weather cooperated with rain in the early early morning before the event. Please remember to total your Teams Km’s and enter your Team’s results.
We heard a few stories from some Teams where team participants gave a lot of effort… a fellow from Nature’s Fare, cycled each day from Summerland. Apparently two years ago, was his first ride, the year it rained, and to boot, he had bike troubles on the highway. With encouragement, he gave this year another try, and though we did not see him at the Celebration Station, I did happen to see him cycling to work. Way to go, for hanging in there. There were also a number of first time cyclists, and participants renting bikes who had not cycled in years. What enthusiam and Congratulations for motivating yourself to participate - Great Team Effort!!
