Bike to Work Week capped by Bike Expo in Duncan May 27

Get your velocipede oiled, shiny and ready to go. May 25 to 29 is Bike to Work Week, and there will be lots of activities for cyclists in the Cowichan Valley.

One of the most popular will be the morning Celebration Stations, where riders can enter their names for prizes and catch a snack before heading off to work. Also back by popular demand will be the Bike to Work team competition.

A highlight of the week will be Bike Expo, May 27 at the Aquatic Centre on James Street in Duncan. It will feature numerous exhibitors including bike shops, bicycle manufacturers, cycling clubs, the RCMP Bike Patrol and other groups that promote cycling in the Valley.

“Cycle Cowichan is excited to promote what the Valley has to offer,” said Event Coordinator Alex Haddad. “Whether it’s commuting,  mountain-biking, road racing or recreational riding, Cowichan has it all.”

Prizes, mechanical support and refreshments will be available to people attending Bike Expo. Plus Cycle Cowichan members will be ready to answer any questions or direct visitors who are interested in more cycling opportunities.
