Bike to Work Week has lots of external motivation to help you cycle through all seasons:
at our commuter stations.
Prizes can be won at commuter stations around Metro Vancouver, plus you can be entered for other prizes by logging your commute online. There are brand new bikes up for grabs, along with waterproof gear, clothing, and free tune-ups to make you visible, comfortable, safe, and stylish.
Apart from all the swag, cycling has great perks for your body, mind, wallet and world.
Commuting by bicycle is a proven mechanism for improving the health and wellness of both individuals and workplaces. It is a viable, cost effective form of transportation. Biking to work rather than driving a single occupant vehicle helps to contribute to a reduction in carbon emissions in our communities. It is also positively the most enjoyable means of traveling between work and home!
Participating in Bike to Work Week delivers measurable results to the individual commuter, our workplaces, our municipalities and our greater Metro Vancouver region as a whole. The program establishes a valuable avenue for marketing sustainable transportation initiatives and practices in the Lower Mainland in the years to come.
