At Greater Victoria Bike to Work Week we have had our wheels in motion for two decades and we are proud to announce our 20th Anniversary of commuter cycling May 26 – June 1, 2014!  We are planning special events throughout the week to celebrate a major milestone of one of the capital region's most supported and recognized free community events attracting over 7,000 commuter cyclists, including 12,000 new cyclists since inception.

Our 20th anniversary campaign will feature 20 celebration stations, our annual Launch event and a live concert Saturday May 31, 2014 closing the week.

Unique to Greater Victoria Bike to Work Society are our cycling skills courses for children and adults; sponsored by the Capital Region District.

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

This message is to let you know that Tuesday, July 15, 2014 will be my last day as Executive Director of the Greater Victoria Bike to Work Society.

Although I have truly enjoyed my time here and will certainly miss the day-to-day excitement along with the wonderful team(s) I have shared my days with for the past 4 years, it is time to move on to other challenges.  I am not leaving the organization completely as I will be staying on in the much reduced role of senior advisor.

Well – the results are in! Cyclists dominated the challenge winning 17 to 6, impressing the 100 on lookers who attended over the course of the event.
