Bike to Work Day comes to Saskatoon - A great way to save on gas prices
Bike to Work Day comes to Saskatoon
Event to encourage cyclists, free refreshments provided
The organizers of Saskatoon's first Bike to Work Day hope people will leave their cars at home Wednesday.
"We decided that this would be a great event to bring awareness to cycling and promote it as an active, reliable, efficient form of transportation," said Megan Marcoux, one of the organizers of the event and vice-president of the Bridge City Bicycle Co-op.
Marcoux said bicycle commuters can stop by one of three stations located at Bike Universe on 20th Street West, Doug's Spoke and Sport on 8th Street and on campus at the U of S bike repair stand between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. for free coffee, baking, fruit and water.
Commuters who may not be biking to work at that time are invited to stop by the Taste of Saskatchewan bike valet from 10:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.
"We're hoping that people who don't typically bike will get out and bike and also those who bike on a daily basis perhaps will encourage their friends, family, colleagues to do the same," she said.
Commuters who stop at the stations will also be able to enter a raffle for prizes including a free bike tune-up and a free bike co-op membership.
