At the May 7th Council meeting the District of Squamish Proclaimed May 27-June 2, 2013 Bike to Work Week and threw their support behind this terrific community event that supports clean air and healthy lifestyles.

All the forms you need!
Feel free to print and share with your staff. Many teams find it easiest if team members keep track of their personal bike trips and km’s on a piece of paper and then the Team Leader enters all the results in to this website at the end of the week.
Don’t forget individuals that bike to and from work 3 days or more will be entered into the prize draw! A bike park seasons’ pass, cruiser bike, panniers and helmet are all up for grabs!

June 5th is Clean Air Day!
No Problem, I Ride to Work Now!
Did you know?
We use our air every two seconds to breathe, and although we can’t see it, it is as important as our drinking water. The main threat to clean air in our region is polluting emissions from cars and trucks, so riding your bike is one of the best things you can do to maintain good air quality!
Clean Air Day is a fun way to continue your commitment to protecting the environment and the air we breathe. Many communities in Canada have Clean Air Day activities. Visit this website to find out how you become part of the solution:www.cleanairday.com.
