Now that you’ve created a team it’s time to sign up as many team members as possible, and eventually, to track the kilometres your team rides during Bike to Work Week. Below are links to two versions of participant sign up sheets that can be used for this purpose.
Happy & Safe Riding, and please contact Mark or Martin with any questions.
Wow, what a fantastic event.
14,000km in just one week, Sunshine Coast Cyclists totally rock. We doubled our last year’s kilometres, enjoyed an endless list of spot and door prizes, and made one particular boy in Roberts Creek very happy after winning the Grand Prize Bike Give-away from Spin Cycles. Congratulations to Max Shaffer.
The Wrap up Party was also a hoot, with nealy 150 folk showing up at the Cafe, some fantastic pizza, a great start to bike polo on the Coast, even a guest appearance by our MLA Nicholas Simons.
After a week of collecting data, SC BTWW are pleased to annouce the following Team Prizes.
Large Team: Field Road Rollers(SCRD) with a massive 844.8km, win 4 x $40 Spin Cycles Vouchers
Medium Team; Chatelech Staff, another 678.5km, brings home 4 x $25 IGA Vouchers
Small Team, Equipe du Pacifique, 259.5km gives them 20 x $2.25 bus tickets
Day 5 of BTWW and we still have 63 teams registered - that’s now 19 more than last year. Pretty impressive for our small set of communities.
Rider counts at the stations have been impressive….check this out:
Monday: Gibsons-52, Sechelt -27, Langdale-10
Tuesday: Gibsons- 35, Sechelt- 37, Lower Gibsons- 15
