Bike to Work Day
May 3 @ 6:00 am - 9:00 am
Bike to Work Day is celebrating its 13th year! On May 3, 2019 – BTWD will celebrate its thirteenth annual event with even more enthusiasm, more participants, and more fun! As with previous years, we will have 10 different bicycle pit stops along the route, where you can receive tune-ups, (for you and your bike) and free giveaways. Everyone will then gather at Eau Claire Market for a free pancake breakfast, music and a chance to catch up with friends and colleagues. Did we mention that this is a great opportunity for vendors to promote their businesses, and for you to get your hands on some free swag? BTWD helps bring Calgarians together in sharing some common goals; promoting cycling as a viable means of transportation, reducing inner-city traffic, and of course reducing the pollution in the air we breathe. Cycling is a great addition to a healthy routine and it can be very cost-effective – not to mention, you look very socially responsible while reducing your carbon footprint.
In addition to the Energy Pit Stop Stations throughout downtown, there will be a festival event at Eau Claire Market in the North Plaza. There will be a FREE pancake breakfast, music, demonstrations, and local bike shops will be there to tune-up your bike, answer questions, and give out free stuff. This event is a great way to highlight the benefits of cycling, while socializing and getting some fresh air. Of course cycling is a healthy, efficient, convenient, low-cost and socially responsible means of transportation, and we know that it contributes to a reduction in inner-city traffic congestion and air pollution, but it’s also a lot of fun! (NEW stops to be announced.)
