Bike to Work Week

Kootenays & Southern Rockies

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

What is Bike to Work Week?

Bike to Work Week encourages people to sign up and commit to commuting to work by bicycle for a week.  Bike to Work encourages employees to create workplace teams and log their cycling commutes to win prizes and compete against other local organizations. 

We hope people will bike to work not just for a day or a week, but always – making cycling a viable commuting option.

Fundraise for the West & East Kootenay Brain Injury Association and qualify to win even more prizes!


In 2016, Bike to Work Week Kootenays is proud return to our tradition of being the only "community" to fundraise for a local not-for-profit society in conjunction with BTWW.  This year we are raising funds for the West & East Kootenay Brain Injury Association (WEKBIA).

West & East Kootenay Brain Injury Association is a small community organization and the only brain injury association serving the entire Columbia Basin/Boundary region. The organization depends on community grants, donations, and fundraising to continue to provide services.  We are asking for your help to collect online pledges to aid them in continuing to provide much needed supports and services to the individuals and families in our communities who are living with an acquired brain injury.

Funds raised in the East Kootenays will support WEKBIA programs in the East Kootenays; funds raised in the West stay in the West - so please ensure you sign up to fundraise for your specific region.
