Bike to Work Week

Gabriola Island

2017 Bike to Work & School Week is May 29 - June 4!

Hello Gabriola Cyclists! 

We're getting ready for our 4th annual Bike to Work Week! We are planning another fun event this year and hope to have some great sponsors and prices again for our participants.  Registration is now open!  Please login if you've previously participated, or click on the Register link above if you're a new rider! You can participate as a solo rider or as a team, and don't forget; you don't need to be commuting to work to join. If you're working from home (this includes stay at home moms and housemakers) or retired, commit to doing some of your errands by bike during bike to work week and you can log these kilometers!  If you're interested in participating, being a sponsor, or just curious what it's all about, please contact me - i'm happy to help! biketoworkgabriola@hotmail.com  

Many cheers & happy cycling, 

Nadine

A big shout out to all cyclists who braved the rain on Tuesday and still enjoyed a pedal on our beautiful Island!  And an extra big thank you to the members of the Islands Trusts Cyclepaths who hosted the Bike to Work Refreshment Station in front of the Island's Trust Office yesterday.  I hope many of you had an opportunity to stop by to say hello. 

May 29, 2017

Our Gabriola Island's Trust Office is not only participating with their team, but also hosting a Bike to Work Tent in front of their office on Tuesday morning.  Cycle by and say hello!  The Island's Trust Tent will be setup between 7:30 and 11:00. 

Happy Cycling Gabriola!
