The day starts at Comox Mall at 8:30 a.m. and the bike will be out and about all day, heading west on Comox Ave from the mall to St. Joe’s Hospital, then looping back to the mall for the next group to take its turn.

The bike will be rolling all day, until 5:30 p.m. Walmart, John’s Independent Grocer, Comox Valley Women’s Business Network, The Lions Club, VI Fitness, Newcomers Club Alumnae, Quality Foods and Superstore will all be participating in this year’s Big Bike event.
