Bike to Work Week
Bike to Work Week
Fall is one of the most beautiful times in Greater Victoria. Cool mornings and evenings make us reach for more layers, we enjoy our hot drinks a little bit more and we don't get as sweaty on our rides to work!
There are so many great benefits to continuing to ride into the fall & winter in Greater Victoria. If you've never ridden your bike past September we encourage you to keep your bike out just a little bit longer and join us for some Celebration Station fun. If you already ride through any season - we are excited to have you stop by and tell us your story.
NOTE: WE HAVE EXTENDED CELEBRATION STATION TIMES - SO COME ON BY. Also - we use dairy free nut milk in our blender bike smoothies. If you have nut allergies please avoid drinking the blender bike smoothies.
You can find us:
1. Kicking off from UVic Fountain 7:30 - 10:00am. Join us for a tasty Starbucks coffee, fruit and muffins from Save on Foods!
