Bike To Work & School Week 2017

This year BTWW & BTSchool will be held in Powell River from May 29 – June 4, 2017. Time to dust off your bike!

To participate, please start rounding up as many co-workers as possible. Also, we invite all schools and teachers to participate as well. We’d like to challenge local businesses and organizations to record their KMs and let’s see who can bike the most during BTWW!

In its inaugural BTWW in 2014, Powell River had

149 Total Riders
15 Total Teams
56 New Riders
38/62 % Female/Male
4,376 Total Kms Cycled
131,294 Calories Burned
949 Kg GHGs Saved

Let’s see if we can start a “chain reaction” and beat last year’s record!

For more information about how to register for BTWW as a team or an individual go to www.biketowork.ca.

Organizing is well under way! This year, we will have several “Celebration Stations” to help everyone celebrate the multitude of personal benefits that go along with regular cycling: health, wellness and fun. Be on the look out for these stations throughout the week where you can stop in for a snack and coffee, maybe win a prize or possibly get your bike checked!

If you would like to get involved as a sponsor, participant or volunteer, please contact Kerry Jones at kandrjones@shaw.ca
