2020 Bike to School Week | 2020 Bike to Work Week

Oceanside

Dear Friends,

After careful consideration of the information and directives coming from the World Health Organization, the Public Health Agency of Canada, and British Columbia’s Medical Officer on the outbreak of COVID-19,  GoByBikeBC Society regrets to announce that we will be postponing our spring 2020 Bike To Work and School Week, which was scheduled to run May 25-31, 2020.

As COVID-19 continues to change the way we work, educate, and interact with friends and family, GoByBike BC hopes that you’ll continue to get outside and ride your bike.

To quote the wise words of our dear friend, Janine Arnold:
"
Flatten the curve, not the tire. Ride on, my friends."

Riding a bike is a great way to stay healthy (physically and mentally) while we live in a socially distanced world. Riding a bike gets you outdoors, experiencing nature, in touch with fresh air and the changing springtime climate, and it rarely brings you into close proximity with other people. Riding a bike also reduces your stress levels in times of uncertainty, like right now; and it allows us to experience the world in new and unexpected ways.

Together, with our various partners and stakeholders, we are developing a plan to run the event at a later date, when it is safe to do so.

The situation with COVID-19 is evolving rapidly. Our main concern during this time is for your health and for the health of your communities.

Stay healthy, keep #goingbybike, ride safe, ride ONLY with immediate housemates, stay at least 2 meters away from other road users, and ensure your bike stays in safe working condition!
