Bike to Work Greater Victoria
|It is Thanks to volunteers that the Greater Victoria Bike to Work Week continues to be a huge success.|
We are looking for volunteers for:
The Commuter Challenge
- The stations you would like to volunteer at and,
- The times you are available (i.e. set up, duration of the station, take down)
Since our inception our mission is to encourage new cyclists to bike to work. In 19 years over 10,000 new riders have taken to the pavement during our events, many of which have continued riding, adopting commuter cycling as a lifestyle choice. To encourage new riders in this year’s Greater Victoria Bike to Work week North Park Bicycle Shop has offered up a brand new Marin Muirwoods Hybrid bike worth $800. This prize will go specifically to a lucky new rider. Could that be you!?
Many of our local Bike Shops have donated incredilbe prizes including new bikes and bike gear. Please see the prize section to see what great prizes you can win if your team is registered!
We are looking for teams for this fun event that compares the travel time between car and bicycle.
Wed May 22nd. 7-9 am
This friendly “race” requires a cyclist and car driver to begin at a common point of your choosing and end at Starbucks on the corner of Fort and Blanshard St between 7:45-8:15 am. Participants must follow all rules of the road, legally park and pre-register here.
Check out this video to see what it’s all about.
