Bike to Work Campbell River
As soon as the cold and gray days of winter recede into their northern refuge, Canadians feel the urge to get outside. For many of us this means going camping. The average camping trip begins with the Herculean task of packing and loading up the van, SUV, trailer or 5th wheel with as many households goods as our vehicles can possibly hold and driving to our favourite piece of paradise.

We are only weeks away from Campbell River’s second annual Bike to Work Week, so it’s time to dig those bikes out of the garage. To help people feel more comfortable in participating in Bike to Work Week, a Safe Riding Skills Course is being offered.

The Retreads are a local women’s cycling group who meet on a weekly basis to ride the local roads and trails. Many of the members are retired and so they no longer need to cycle to work but cycling has become their recreation and their method of transportation.
