On Wednesday May 19 staff from the VIHA Public Health Unit participated in a Flat Repair and Safety Clinic facilitated by Dan Clements of Outdoor Addictions. Why you ask? They are getting ready for this year’s Bike To Work Week, May 31-June 6. At this clinic they learned how to change a flat tire, the essentials for riding to work and how to do a pre-ride safety check on their bikes.

Interesting Facts: While completing my teaching internship in New Zealand I went on a solo bike tour of the north island. There were a lot of hills!
It’s that time of year again: May 31 to June 6, 2010 is Bike to Work Week. As an avid cyclist, I am a firm believer that bike commuting is about more than simply getting from A to B without burning fossil fuels. When pedaling to work, each morning presents a new adventure—from battling the elements, to choosing which route to take, to saluting fellow cyclists along the way.
