““Bike to Work Week is a much appreciated way of getting people to discuss how transportation choices affect community well-being in a way that builds community, rather than in a confrontational way. I would say that Bike to Work week is not only an investment in environmentally sensible tra...”

Joel Carter, Information Systems Infrastructure Team Member, Kal Tire, Vernon, BC Joel Carter started participating in Bike to Work Week 10 years ago when he worked at BCIT in Burnaby. When he moved to Vernon, he found it enjoyable to bike to work during most months of the year—although he admits the Okanagan snow makes it a little difficult to bike commute in the peak winter months. Carter and his family aim to operate one vehicle in their household and biking to work enables his family to achieve this environmentally and economically-friendly goal. “I also find it difficult to find time to exercise with a busy schedule and by biking to work it serves two purposes: it enables me to get some exercise; and it is great form of transportation to and from work.” He adds, “…and when I arrive at work, I feel awake and alert.

I have participated in bike to work week for a few years in Canada but had also done it in Australia before we moved here 4 years ago. This was the first year that my daughter was involved however (in the photo). I leave for work early before my wife and daughter are awake. My wife drops my daughter and bike trailer off at daycare in the morning on her way to work. I leave work early on my bike and attach the bike trailer and ride my daughter home from daycare. My ride is 30 minutes each way but my daughter is only in the chair for 10 minutes on the way home. She likes the trailer but hates the helmet, she is getting better with practice though. We have got efficient enough at this that we did not re-register one of our cars for the summer months but will re-register it in winter when it isn't safe for Harriet and I to ride.

Check out this short “How to Bike to School Safely” video made by a grade 5 student in Smithers? It is REALLY well made and easy for kids to relate to and learn from. Teaching kids about the rules of the road and how to bike safely at a young age is very important for all road users and this video does a FANTASTIC job of it: https://vimeo.com/166741641
