We had a special visitor from Bike to Work Week BC; Richard Bakus, the President of our provincial group came to check out our P.G. event today. He was snapping photos of our participants to take home. Richard’s favourite thing about PG BTWW? Our Bus signage! He was really impressed to see this as evidence of the great relationship between the PG Cycling Club, the City, and BC Transit.
Here’s Richard getting a shot of Peter’s family bike.
