Next week, May 27-31 is Bike to Work Week in Canada, and I’m so impressed at how many great events are taking place around the Northern Health region!
For example, in Terrace on Monday, residents are encouraged to be at City Hall at 6:30a.m. for a half hour “critical mass” style community bike ride around downtown. What a great way to kick things off and be motivated for the rest of the week! And Prince George’s BTWW gets kicked off with a free to-go breakfast at their City Hall on Monday.
The Bike to Work Week website offers a full schedule of participating communities – check it out and see what’s going on in yours! Will you riding your bike to work next week?
