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

Thank you everyone who came out to join us for a cup of fresh coffee and some yummy Robert baked muffins this morning! 

We also enjoyed a nice ride around the island after work, and quite a few riders joined us for all or a portion of the ride.  It was a lovely day.  Thank you everyone who came out and a special thank you to Robert for hosting us again this year on his lovely patio!

And please remember, Bike to Work Week is not finished yet!  We still have Saturday and Sunday to log kilometers!
