Nanaimo seeks support for annual Bike to Work Week event

The City of Nanaimo seeks community support for its annual Bike to Work Week event May 26-June 1.

Groups and businesses are needed to coordinate celebration stations, help with community bike rides, provide financial support and offer discounts for participants.

The purpose of Bike to Work Week is to encourage commuters to ride their bike instead of drive their vehicle. Participants can register individually or as a team. At the end of the event, kilometres are logged and submitted to the Bike to Work website.

In 2013, Nanaimo had 57 teams and 238 participants who cycled more than 9,100 kilometres. This year’s event will be in conjunction with Bike and Walk to School Week.

Please contact Deborah Beck, recreation coordinator for parks, recreation and environment, at deborah.beck@nanaimo.ca or 250-756-5203.
