Victoria BC’s event had over 3000 cyclist participate! The “editor” attended the Kelowna week ending finale.
Bike to Work Week Kelowna was a smashing a Smashing Success! Over 1700 cyclists took part in our Bike to Work Week events last week. I know many of you came to more than one, but that is incredible! Thank you so much for all your support. The momentum has been building for the past eight years and we are still getting more teams than ever before.
Over 450 people attended the wrap up BBQ on Friday afternoon at Parkinson Rec Centre. (so cool to see many wearing the Accent Inn Bike Lover stickers -editor)
