KAMLOOPS - Get ready to ride! With only days until the official start of Bike to Work and School Week 2016 begins, riders are gearing up for a great week of commuter cycling.
From Monday, May 30 to June 5, bike routes throughout the city will be filled with cycling enthusiasts. Please visit www.biketowork.ca/kamloops to register as a new rider or log in to access an established account.
The Kamloops business community has generously supported the event this year and a number of prizes are available for all riders. A provincial grand prize of a cycling trip to Vietnam is up for grabs. Entering to win the trip is as easy as registering and logging one ride. The Kamloops grand prize is a Norco Storm cross country mountain bike.
Enter to win by cycling through a Celebration Station. Additionally, registered riders are eligible to win one of two coveted spots in the RBC Whister GranFondo. Details on how to win can be found at www.biketowork.ca/kamloops.
This year the Kamloops BTWSW t-shirts are a vibrant red and are available to all riders for a $10 donation. They can be purchased at the Saturday Farmer’s Market, at all Celebration Stations, or by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. All t-shirt revenue goes directly back into the event to keep the program running.
Celebration Stations are a big attraction for riders during the week. Riders are encouraged to cycle through as many Celebration Stations as they can. For a complete schedule of morning and afternoon Celebration Stations, please refer to www.biketoworkbc.ca/kamloops.
School kids are eager to get on their bikes and start their day with a fun bike ride. This year there are six elementary schools hosting a Celebration Station:
1. Beattie School of the Arts (McGill Elementary Campus)
2. L’Ecole Lloyd George Elementary
3. David Thompson Elementary
4. South Sahali Elementary
5. Pacific Way Elementary
6. Pinantan Elementary
