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 kamloopsbtww@gmail.com. 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

Oyama has already been hit by extensive flooding and lake levels are expected to rise for several more weeks.

OYAMA – Stuck between two lakes is probably the worst place to be during a flood. Tween Lakes Resort, located between Wood Lake and Kalamalka Lake, is close to be completely covered in water, as mountain snow continues to melt faster
