Bus - Bike – Car Challenge
Thursday, May 30 marked Oceanside’s first Bus-Bike-Car challenge. A group of cyclists joined Andy Telfer to take on motor vehicle commuter Matt Palmer. Palmer and Telfer typically commute daily from Qualicum Beach to Parksville, and left the same time as the regularly scheduled BC Transit Bus route #90. Everyone started at the Qualicum Beach Civic Centre and finished at the Parksville Community and Conference Centre.

Qualicum Beach Family Day
The weather cooperated for the Family Day parade. Thank you to those that cycled with us including Qualicum Beach Mayor Westbroek who looked great in his Bike To Work Week T-Shirt. We offered Bike Parking for the afternoon in the fields behind the Civic Centre. Our customers appreciated being able to leave their bikes in a safe, secure place while taking in the Family Day activities.
