Bike to Work Day – May 25, 2015

YouTube Preview Image

Bike to Work Day is celebrated across the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area each year to encourage people to try cycling to work instead of driving.

It is a campaign that is geared at bringing awareness to the benefits of cycling, as many of the trips we take are within an easy distance.

Travelling by bike saves you the cost of gas and parking all while having zero impact on air quality and bringing a positive impact to your overall health.

This year, Bike to Work Day is May 25, where thousands of riders all over the GTHA will take part in cycling to work. This kicks off the start of Bike Month, which runs from May 25th- June 25th.

The City of Burlington will be hosting their 4th AnnualĀ  Bike to Work Day Breakfast in partnership with Smart Commute Halton on May 25 from 7:30 a.m-9 a.m. in Civic Square. I look forward to seeing you there.
