Comox Valley Bike to Work Week
BE SURE TO REGISTER!
If you haven’t already registered for this year’s BTWW, visit www.biketowork.ca/comox_valley, click on the orange ‘Register Team’ button on the top right and enter your info. Each team that registers online will be ENTERED TO WIN a Kona Dew commuter bike, courtesy of Simon’s Cycles! The draw will take place mid-June when one lucky winner can continue their commute to work with a brand new ride!
Here’s how the draw works: we put all of the team names into a draw – the winning team will be contacted and we will set up a time to have a secondary draw at that workplace as part of a ‘coffee break’ party – we bring the bike and some goodies and conduct the draw onsite with a photo opp for the paper.
Note: you can be a team of ‘one’ or buddy up and create a team with your co-workers/friends/family members and share in the fun together! And you don’t have to necessarily bike to work – we recognize that not everyone works in an office so if you replace a car trip with an outing by bike, it counts!! Or you can bus and bike – did you know our local transit buses have bike racks so you can make your commute a bit easier if you need to!
Also on the webpage, click on the “Resources” tab and you will find registration how-to’s, bike commuting tips AND a team participation form where you and your co-workers can track your cycling activity for the week.
Visit http://www.biketowork.ca/node/12846 for a more detailed schedule of Celebration Stations which will be set up throughout the Valley each morning – be sure to drop by to meet other bike commuters and enjoy a healthy snack. Bike to the Playground, Bike to School and a free wrap-up BBQ at the Broken Spoke are other fun events happening during the week.
Get ready to gear up and enjoy some fun, fitness and camaraderie – if you need further info, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (250) 890-9116.
Have fun and happy biking!
