Winter Bike to Work Day 2016 has been set and registration on the website is open for Edmontonians to sign up.
This year the Winter Bike to Work day is slated for Friday, February 12th, 2016.
You can register for your Winter Bike to Work Day ride at their official Website.
This is the third year that Bikeology, Earth’s General Store, and the Edmonton Bicycle Commuters’ Society are promoting and involved in the Winter Bike to Work Day.
The first year we did a hot chocolate and doughnuts gathering at the south end of the High Level Bridge and cyclist dropped by for some conversation, treats and comradery.
The second year we had hot blueberry pancakes at Earth’s General Store Downtown.
This will b e repeated again this year. Organic Cafe at Earth’s General Store Downtown will be hosting a Winter Bike to Work Day Pancake Breakfast. It is free, friendly, and fun! Check out our Facebook event page for details. Bicycles and Pancakes – wow – is there anything finer?
City Councillors Scott McKeen and Andrew Knack will be joining our breakfast and at 8am will read the proclamation on behalf of Mayor Don Iveson.
Winter Bike to School Day
There is also a Winter Bike to School Day portal to help collect data and numbers of people that choose this mode of transportation to get to their schools. If you know anyone that would be interested in registering their children or schools in this please point them to the Website.
Winter Walk Day
There is nothing as simple as walking. It is the most ecological form of transportation (though not as efficient as cycling). This year the Winter Walk Day is happening on February 3rd, 2016. So grab your child and walk with them to school but give yourself extra time because your child will make an adventure of it. Invite your partner to head out for a walk around your neighbourhood, or to a local cafe, or just a stroll in the river valley.
Wondering where all the bikey happenings are? Check out our new Events Calendar (see the link above) and mosey on over to check out bikey-love in Edmonton!
Ah, the sweet scent of bicycle grease and handlebar tape. The delightful sounds of pedals whirring round and round and round. The less exciting feel of a new (or new to the season of cycling) saddle, piercing your tender bits just where they’re tenderest.
Yes, folks, it’s Bike Month in Edmonton, and there are amazing events happening all around town. Or, if you don’t find what you want to do, YOU can make it happen.
Wanna ride about and drink coffee? Send us a bit o’info about your route and we’ll post it. Wanna pedal to Devon, throw your bicycle in a canoe and float down the river, but want to go with someone? Let us know, we’ll post it for you. Know of any bikey happenings we don’t have on the calendar (hey, sorry the links were broke earlier, but we fixed that!), you know what to do now!
See you in the bike lanes, or trails, or roads, or parks…
Eep! Turns out when things change, it’s important to keep abreast of what’s changed…
As you may remember, there was a calendar of events that were hosted by Bikeology: Festival, to which you could merrily go and meet other bikey folk. This calendar was updated to reflect the new look and feel of the website, BUT we forgot that changes to one end meant changes to other ends… in this instance the CALENDAR!… Sigh… this weekend we’ll be working frantically to populate it!! Trust us, there ARE EVENTS HAPPENING IN Bike Month. Promise and they start tomorrow with the MEC Bikefest, from 11-2 p.m.
