Welcome Gabriola Cyclists!

Weare busy getting ready for our 5th 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. Stay tuned for upcoming posts!   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

Are you heading to the Farmers Market this Saturday?   Leave your car at home and cycle down to see Tom.   If you haven't signed up yet, or wonder what Bike to Work and School is all about, he'd be happy to tell you a bit about it!  

Remember that any cycling trip you make can be logged including on Sunday...it's not just about the weekdays!  Choose to hop on your bike instead of taking the car to the library,  or to the Market and enjoy our beautiful Island! 

Happy cycling, 

Nadine
