2019 Fall Bike to Work Week | 2019 Fall Bike to School Week

Salt Spring & Other Gulf Islands


Wednesday, May 22, 2019

Get ready, get set, and register again for Bike-to-Work Week 2019, this year running from Monday, May 27th to Sunday, June 2nd. 

On Salt Spring Island, we've organised free breakfast stations to make cycling to work and school more fun, these include Monday at Islands Trust (8-9:30am, 500 Lower Ganges Rd), Tuesday at Salt Spring Elementary (7:45-8:25am), Wednesday at Fernwood School (7:45-8:25am), and Outspokin Bikes on Saturday (9:30-11am, 131 McPhillips). 

Bike-to-School events will include free tune-ups, a bike circuit, helmet sales & bike safety swag. 

Friday, bike-skills workshops have been organised by Outspokin Bikes to take place for ages 6-9 from 10:30-noon and ages 10-12 from 1 to 3pm, with pizza lunch in between. Thanks to the Firefighters Association, tickets are by donation (going towards Islands Trust) and available at Outspokin Bikes. 

Don't have a bike, or intrigued by e-bikes? Salt Spring Adventure Co. is offering 25% off all bike rentals, and Hill-Eater Bikes is offering bike demos at Saturday mornings celebration station. It's a real thrill to throttle uphill! 

Hope to see you there! Please encourage friends and colleagues to register in order to support this 8th annual Bike event! More info about the event is here in the awesome Driftwood article about it all: https://www.gulfislandsdriftwood.com/news/gearing-up-for-bike-to-work-week/
