Prince Rupert begins Bike to Work (and School) week today

The start of another week has already seen a number of North Coast residents taking to their bikes for the annual Bike to Work (and School) Week activity which continues through to June 5th.

Those that are participating have already registered through the online registration process available from Bike to Work Prince Rupert (see here) while those that participated in last years event can use their password from last year to automatically (log in here) become part of this years travels.

Schools around the North Coast can register as well with more background on the Bike to School Week plans found here.

Participants in this year's event are all in the running (or is that cycle?) to win a cycling trip to Vietnam as part of a national competition for this years program.

Javadot.cup is Biking central for this years event having hosted the Opening event on May 28th and serving as the city's Celebration Station through the week, with Save On Foods and Shoppers helping to fuel up the cyclists through the week.

The 3rd Avenue coffee shop is just one of many local sponsors that have joined up to help spread the work about Bike to Work, the full list of those lending a hand can be found on the poster to the right.

You can find more information about the seven day's of biking from the website or Facebook page created for the event.

Updates on the week's success can be found from those two options, as organizers keep track of the participants and the mileage accumulated as June 5th approaches.
