We made it to the finals! What a great thing to be proud of! And people were proud - all across BC. A few wore their Canucks jerseys while participating in Bike to Work Week and sent us the photo - showing real community and provincial spirit! We may not have won the Stanley Cup - but we sure worked hard!

How do you make Bike to Work Week a success in a town where the average age is around 62?
With so many people retired, car commuting longer distances to larger towns or part time/stay at home parents we had to think of some things that would work for our very unusual local population! Here’s what A-Channel had to say!
