Bike to Work Week wraps up

Congratulations and thanks to all who participated in making this year’s Bike to Work Week events on campus a success!

Our ridership was up 25% over last year and we collectively rode a combined distance of 2319 km. That’s like riding to Port Hardy and back almost two and a half times! 

There was a ride up breakfast on campus on opening day, a yoga session over lunch, a bike skills competition, quick and expert bike tune-ups, and tons of prizes.  There were daily prizes, prizes for attending events, a prize for longest commute, shortest commute, prizes for the skills competition, and more.

The Bike to Work Week Committee would like to gratefully acknowledge all the individuals, university departments and businesses which contributed to this year’s bumper crop of prizes. Without them, we would have been nothing more than a bunch of cyclists with healthy glows.
