1 ½ weeks until Bike to Work Week

Bike to Work Week is less than two weeks away. Join the RRU Roadies’ and help us improve on our combined performance from last year.  Signing up is as easy as emailing btww@royalroads.ca and making sure ‘sign me up!’ is your subject line.  Then, each day you ride that week, enter your daily mileage on the online distance tracker so we can track our combined efforts.

What will motivate you?

  • Do you like being a part of something big? Then sign up and contribute your commuting distance to our combined totals. Last year 30 of us cycled a combined distance of 1644 kilometers, with riders peddling anything from 2 to 34 kilometers a day. Let’s see how much better we can do this time around!
  • Are more motivated by competition than collaboration? Then create a team of co-workers and challenge other campus teams to out-commute you. More information on that here.
  • Do you want to win things? Then you need to know that there will be prizes. The more times you ride, the better your chances of winning.
  • Do you want to eat and have fun?  Then read on!
