Thinking of biking to work this Fall but not sure you can do it?


Ask your workplace for an on-site lunchtime workshop.These group sessions are fun, interactive, and help get you ready to try biking to work in the Fall and Winter.

Check out the Biking to Work: Fall & Winter Riding Workshop (1 hour).

This intermediate-level workshop is a great way to encourage those who ride in warmer weather to try biking to work in the Fall. Participants will learn more advanced tips and tricks about biking to work in Metro Vancouver's winter riding conditions, including dressing for the weather (staying warm and dry), more advanced cycling safety, advanced use of your gears, cold-weather care for your bike, lights and visibility, and more.

Why aren't more people using bike lanes?

Those who don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat it: as the winds of change blow in our new bike lanes, opponents of change shout against the wind – just as others once railed against cars.

Road rage or traffic tantrums?

Recently, the news has been full of road rage, but let’s call a spade a spade. Road rage is really just a traffic tantrum (a tantrum in a four-ton vehicle that endangers us all).
