Get ready, get set, and register again for Bike-to-Work Week 2019, this year running from Monday, May 27th to Sunday, June 2nd. 

On Salt Spring Island, we've organised free breakfast stations to make cycling to work and school more fun, these include Monday at Islands Trust (8-9:30am, 500 Lower Ganges Rd), Tuesday at Salt Spring Elementary (7:45-8:25am), Wednesday at Fernwood School (7:45-8:25am), and Outspokin Bikes on Saturday (9:30-11am, 131 McPhillips). 

Bike-to-School events will include free tune-ups, a bike circuit, helmet sales & bike safety swag. 

May 31, 2018

We had so much fun this morning at Salt Spring Elementary, where probably about 40 students brought bicycles or scooters to school and enjoyed snacks, stuck stickers on their helmets, got free bike tune-ups from Sean at Outspokin Bikes, and cruised the cone course on the playground. They can't get enough of the playground loop and go around and around... Afterwards, we decided that next year, we'll focus on school events all week and spread them around the island. Thank you to all who helped!
