2018 Bike to Work Week | 2018 Bike to School Week

Tofino

2018 Bike to Work & School Week is May 28 - June 3, 2018!

Welcome to Bike to Work Week Tofino 2018. Spring is almost here. We are looking forward to the bike path being busy with work commuters and kids and families out enjoying the nice weather.


For those of you who haven’t got your bike on the road yet this year, now is the time! Many locations in our small town are within biking distance, and you'll find that the fresh air on the way to your destination feels great. Our bike friendly Multi-Use-Path connects down town Tofino all the way out to Cox Bay, eliminating biking on the side of the highway. We encourage everyone to get on their bike as much as they can this week, with the longer, brighter days that are here, there's really no excuse not to!


Make sure to sign your team up and record your daily trips. There's an opportunity to win prizes both locally and provincially. Stay tuned on our events page for activities happening throughout the week!


Remember, you can’t be sad while riding a bicycle. :)

Cyclists

  • The beginning of the cycling season is a good time to tune up your bike. Perform regular maintenance and safety checks yourself or take your bike to a qualified bike mechanic to prevent mechanical breakdown.
  • Plan your route before you set off, give yourself plenty of time and choose bike lanes and paths whenever possible. If you’re new to cycling, choose routes with less traffic.
