It is Bike to Work Week in Vancouver starting today, May 30th through to June 5th.
Not only is cycling a healthy and an environmentally-friendly commuting option, you can also win prizes for commuting on two wheels. Register your team of co-workers online at biketoworkmetrovan.ca for your chance to win. There will also be free coffee, snacks, prizes and parties on bike routes the whole week.
My employer allows me to dress a bit more casually on my bicycle commuting days. Perhaps this is something that your workplace has already embraced.
As I strap on my bike helmet for my commute to work this Wednesday, I will be wearing my Canucks shirt to work to support the home team. Go Canucks Go!

I rode my bike to work today.
I love the fact that during the summer, my employer doesn’t mind if I wear business casual clothes so that they fold up nicely in my cycling pannier when I commute to work by bicycle. I love the fact that our office building has a secured bike room with shower facilities. I love the fact that I feel refreshed and energized and ready to start a productive work day.
I love the fact that when I came off the Burrard Street Bridge, I got this free T-shirt from bike vancouver. The City of Vancouver is celebrating ‘one year one million bikes’ since the Burrard Street Bridge separated bike lanes came into effect.
Isn’t it great that we live in such an amazing city that offers a variety of opportunities for a healthy lifestyle?
I love riding my bike to work.
