Rupertites ready to take to their two wheels for Bike to Work week

The prospect of Bike to Work Week normally involves a careful scan of the long range weather forecast, our unpredictable weather patterns offering up more than a few challenges to the truly devoted.

Still, late May should be better than late March (though you wouldn't have known it last week) so with fingers crossed Prince Rupert residents that signed up for the week long celebration take to their bicycles this week.

The Ride your Bike to Work event  was officially kicked off on Saturday, with registration taking place at the Ice House Gallery.

The One week challenge will see individuals or teams competing from Monday May 26th, to Saturday May 31st.  Participants need to only ride their bicycle once during the week to qualify for a number of prizes, with a range of activities planned for the week ahead.

The wrap up to Bike to Work week comes up on May 31st with a BBQ and awarding of prizes to take place at the Salmonberry Farmer's Market at the Prince Rupert Courthouse.

Here for your bike riding planning, is the week long forecast for Prince Rupert from Environment Canada.

You can find out more about the Challenge from the facebook page created for the event.
