BTWW Kamloops Media Release April 24, 2012
Bike To Work Week 2012 Up And Peddling With Big Goal!
Kamloops Bike To Work Week (BTWW) is excited to announce that registration is now open for the week-long 2012 event, which runs from May 28 to June 3. As always, registration is free, and people are encouraged to register a team from their workplace as soon as possible. This province-wide event is supported by the City of Kamloops and the Province of BC because of its emphasis on encouraging people to get to and/or from work on their bicycle, a healthy, enjoyable and sustainable form of transportation .
The over-all format of the event will mirror last year’s event, and will feature daily Celebration Stations at key city locations where bicycle commuters can fuel up with free coffee, breakfast snacks, and a newspaper. There will also be lots of opportunities to win daily prizes from sponsors, and a chance at a grand prize that will be drawn at the end of the week. The 2011 Kamloops event was hugely popular with the 73 participating teams. Because of the success of last year’s event, this year’s goal is to sign-up 100 teams. Teams can be as small as one person and as big as they like; the more the merrier! To register a team, click on the "Team Leaders" tab near the top of this page.
This year’s event co-coordinator, Marcia Dick, is seeking other volunteers to help on the event committee or with specific duties, such as during event days. Please contact her to get involved, or with any questions about the event (email@example.com, or 778-470-5695).
Those interested in becoming an event sponsor should click on the "Sponsors" tab near the top of this page.
