Go By Bike BC Event 2021
May 31st – June 6, 2021
Ride your bike to work, to school, for fun, for exercise, to stretch your legs between Zoom meetings, to clear your mind … no matter the reason, just ride your bike and log your bike rides online! Welcoming all Kootenay Boundary Physicians and IH Staff to join the fun. Lots of prizes, including a cycling adventure for 2 along the Dalmatian Coast in Croatia.
Each year, GoByBike BC’s Spring & Fall Bike to Work & School Week encourages British Columbians to choose their bicycles for transportation rather than a motor vehicle: Converting sedentary time behind the steering wheel, into time pedalling their bicycle wheels; enjoying healthy, environmentally friendly, active transportation. During the last spring event (2019), 56,074 riders cycled 2.97 million kilometres (rather than drove those kilometres via motor vehicle) and saved 644,005 kilograms of greenhouse gases from entering our atmosphere. A total of 89.1 million calories were burned during this event!
