Team Leaders are entitled to a free Bike To Work Week t-shirt. If
you haven’t already, you can pick yours up at the Farmer’s Market on 3rd and St. Paul this Saturday, May 23rd until noon.
For families and individuals, our last group ride will be leaving from the Farmer’s Market Bike To Work Week table this Saturday at 11:30am. The ride is non-athletic, and suitable for our younger riders, and will be taking a route from the market to the Dairy Queen on 8th Ave, and back. This ride is open to everyone, and is a great opportunity for less experienced riders to familiarize themselves with riding in traffic with a group of riders.
There is a bike rodeo this Sunday, May 24th in the parking lot behind the Riverside Coliseum (ISC) from 1-4pm. The RCMP will be in attendance to fit helmets and bicycles, and to ensure proper road safety skills for our younger riders.

WRAP UP BBQ
All registered participants of Bike To Work and Bike To School Week are invited to our Wrap-up BBQ on Friday, May 29th at the Riverside Park Bandshell. This event begins at 3:30pm and includes free BBQ for registered participants (first come first served), as well as music, photo opportunities, and a stretching booth. Critical Mass will be leaving from the park at 5:15pm. Both Bike to Work and Bike to School will draw/announce their Grand Prize winners (as well as giving out other prizes), so your team’s numbers of riders and age range must be in by then for inclusion. You can continue logging trips for your students through to the end of the week, however we need all of the participants to be registered on the Dashboard by Friday afternoon.
We are running an Instagram contest, #bikehairdontcare, inviting all participants of the week to show us your helmet hair from riding to school/work. Winners will be announced at the BBQ.
Also, you can like Bike To School Week Kamloops on Facebook for more updates, to share your school’s experiences, and to get a jump on subsequent years.
We have lots of prizes going out to school Celebration Stations,
