Bike to Work Week!

by: Alina on 05/26/2014

Several of us here at New Society are joining in the fun of British Columbia’s Bike to Work Week, May 26-30. Bike to Work BC is a registered nonprofit society created to “experience the joy of an ever-increasing number of people safely commuting by bicycle … and encourage more people in all BC communities to commute by bicycle through Bike to Work initiatives.” Bike to Work Week began in 1995 and has been expanding ever since – last year saw 20,000 riders participate.

The positives? The rain has held back for every ride. The negatives? Gabriola hills haven’t gotten any smaller… If your workplace is anything like ours, we’re sure your coworkers won’t mind your sweaty, red-faced arrival at work!

Grab a few friends, your coworkers or just hope on a bike yourself and join the movement to get people out of their cars and onto their bikes. And who knows, you may even win a prize or two.

Check back at the end of the week to see how many kilometres, calories, and minutes the folks at New Society have clocked for this year’s Bike to Work Week.
