Rob Lawrance, city environmental planner, left, and Peter McCaffery, president of the Mid Island Velo Association, are first across the finish line at Diana Krall Plaza for the Bike to Work Week Commuter Challenge Friday.

Cycling teams raced their car-driving commuter counterparts from Brooks Landing and Vancouver Island University.

Both cycling teams trounced the car commuters who had to find parking spots before they were allowed to cross the finish line. Cyclists who cheered on the contestants went for a 10-kilometre community ride afterward.
