Still time to register for Bike to Work Week

Win a bike from Simon’s Cycles

We have just one week left until this year’s edition of Bike to Work Week.

2018 Bike to Work & School Week is May 28 – June 3.

In its 11th year here in the Comox Valley, there are already 116 teams registered, representing 207 riders from across the Comox Valley.

Dan Foulds, the winner of the Simons Cycle Kona Dew bike last year, decided to start biking to work as a personal health initiative.

In 2017, Dan heard about the local bike to work week and thought it would be a great way to kick start his path to improved health. At the time he did not have a bike so he built himself a fixed gear bike from scrap pieces and parts he found. Dan’s daily commute was Cumberland to 19 Wing Comox and back and not only did he lose 25 pounds in that week, he noticed that the ride home was an incredible way to decompress from his work day. His favourite part of the commute was “the view on the ride home and being able to pass all of the cars lined up on Ryan Road!”

For those of you worried about the weather, Dan reminds us that BC Transit buses will allow you to ride with your bike.

If you would like a chance to win a bike from Simons Cycles this year, register for Go By Bike BC at www.biketowork.ca/comox-valley.
