Bike to Work Week started right here in Victoria 24 years ago!  The Greater Victoria Bike to Work Society continues to organize the annual FREE community event which has grown from 50 teams and 500 participants in 1997 to over 1,600 teams and 7,000 participants in 2018.

 We're thrilled for the opportunity to make the event accessible to even more people throughout the region.  We're also excited to be collaborating with several non-profits and community groups that will be joining our stations to share other interesting cycling-related projects.

 

Grand Prize Trip Winner:

Malene Foyd has won a cycling trip for two in Portugal courtesy of Exodus Travels.

“I couldn’t believe it when my friends texted me to let me know I won,” says Foyd. “I have dreamt of going to Portugal for years to swim in the Atlantic Ocean [and] I have been wanting to go on a bike trip.”

Foyd works for the Ministry of Environment and logged four trips during BTWW for a total of 48.88 kilometers, but she isn’t new to two-wheeled travel. “I have used my bike as my method of transportation since I learned biking as a three-year-old in Denmark. I always bike to work, rain or shine, and in my work clothes--it’s fun to bike and it puts me in a good mood.”

She will spend eight days with her husband exploring Portugal by bike while riding from Porto to Lisbon. “I am excited about seeing the country by bike, as it is a wonderful, calm way to travel. And then to be treated to stay in hotels along the way with dinner and wine tasting –I can’t wait!”

"I love the idea of me just having to figure out when to go – that Exodus Travels will take care of all of the travel details for me! Thank you so much, Exodus!"
