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
