Bike to Work Prince George
We had a great Bike Swap last weekend!
Thanks to all those who donated bikes & bottles to help support the PG Cycling Club!
Bike to Work Week is coming soon, this year it will be May 27th-June 3rd! We’ll be kicking off the week with opening of the Duchess Park Bike Park! Look for the Bike to Work Week tent.
We’ve got lots of new and exciting Celebration Stations planned for P.G., so make sure you don’t miss out. Follow the instructions on the home page for your registration-this year it is easier than ever. Then you can start recruiting team members from your work or school! Your team size is based on the size of your workplace or school and ‘walkers’ count against this team size.
