Are you and your bike ready for Bike to Work Week (BTWW)? With only three weeks to go, Coastal Cycles is offering RRU staff and students 10 per cent off the cost of a tune up between now and BTWW (the discount is 10 per cent off parts and labour).

With your ride tuned up, the next step is signing up to join the RRU Roadies for BTWW May 26 to June 1. We would love to have you, regardless of experience level!

Sign up

Register by emailing btww@royalroads.ca. Then each day you ride during Bike to Work Week, enter your daily mileage on the online distance tracker so we can track our combined efforts. We encourage you to share the word with your colleagues! (see the three weeks left event poster)

Take part in the festivities

BTWW hosts celebration stations to keep you motivated throughout the week. Check out the schedule and map to plan your route.

There are great prizes to be had for participating in BTWW. Prizes are given away weekly on Facebook leading up to Bike to Work Week. At Celebration Stations during the week, prizes are drawn daily. The BTWW team has secured nearly $30,000 in amazing prizes and the more you ride, the better your chances at winning are.

More details about RRU-specific activities and opportunities will be announced in Crossroads closer to BTWW.
