What a great week, an average of 50-70 folks stopped in at the Celebration Stations located around the Valley from 7-9am each morning.

There was an amazing response from the schools with 682 students and 83 staff riding and a huge amount of people seen pedaling around the Valley every day...

More info and photos from the week can be found here: Bike to Work Comox Valley.

On Thursday morning there was even a special "Bike to the Playground" event for the pre-schoolers, photos can be found here, here and here

Upcoming Events

Presentation by CV Cycling Coalition to Council of City of Courtenay
Monday, May 11th, 4:00pm

This is by far the most important event in the short history of our coalition. The purpose of this meeting is to convince council that it is worth investing a portion of our tax dollars into making cycling safer and more convenient in our valley so more people ride their bikes for transportation.

This will reduce the need to continue building more roads, bridges and parking for cars and it will keep our air clean and our valley more liveable.

A large turn out of people at this event will show the members of council that many people in the valley are for cleaner and sustainable transportation.

Please make an effort to be there and encourage others to join us.

Presentation to Council of Town of Comox
This presentation has been postponed, more details to follow.

May 21st, 7:00pm at the Lewis Centre in Courtenay.
