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.

The staff at Christian Life Daycare are proof that Bike to Work Week can initiate some great changes in lifestyle and health. In 2008 Sheila Keats and Monica Brown, staff members at the Christian Life Daycare on Merecroft Road, Campbell River read about Bike to Work week in the Courier Islander. They decided to enter a team and asked other staff if they would like to participate.
Congratulations Campbell River! We have just completed the fist annual Bike to Work Week. By all accounts, the week was a tremendous success. A huge Thank You to all of our sponsors and to the Bike to Work Week organizing committee – this week could not have happened without you!
