Great seeing so many biking to school in Comox and Cumberland and the bike commuters of the future at the Bike to the Playground event in Courtenay and thanks to the RCMP and 529 Garage for being there;

Monday May 25th - Courtenay City Council/Green Team kickoff event, including a ride with an elected official



Tuesday May 26th - An event packed day, Simon's Cycles at the iHos Gallery was the place to be with 91 folks stopping in or riding by (94 yesterday), enjoying another beautiful morning on the Dyke Road, they are there all week, why not ride by and say hi.

The bikes win! The second annual Commuter Challenge was won by bike, traffic and parking slowing down the 97.3FM The Eagle cruiser

The race started at 97.3FM The Eagle. The commuters had 3 stops to go to; The Broken Spoke, Mountain City Cycle and CVRD head office and the challenge finished at the Lewis Centre. David Frisch won with 13 min on a regular bike, Darcy Walters rode an e-bike and finished 15 min and the 97.3FM The Eagle cruiser, well lets say it was way behind, parking and traffic presented an issue for them. Everyone had fun!

 

At CFB Comox it was a busy morning and in Courtenay, biking to the playground is always a fun time.

Wednesday May 27th - Biking to School (and college)

The Celebration Station at the Cumberland Community School Campus was a hit!



 

Meanwhile at Puntledge Park Elementary and at North Island College, the CVRD were showing students how to go part way by transit, part by bike using the bus racks (2 on each bus and free to use)




Friday May 29th - More Biking to School 

Ecole Robb Rd in Comox has had an amazing response with the bike racks full to bursting each day, a bikers breakfast table full of goodies for the riders, prize draws and a map showing how far everyone travelled, here's a few photos;

  

Later in the day, the Courtenay Council Go Smart Committee saw a huge amount of cyclists heading home at the end of what was the busiest Bike to Work Week yet!
