(WINDSOR, ON) – Join the Windsor Bicycling Committee (WBC) and travel some of Windsor’s bike lanes, trails, and signed routes to get to work on the morning of Friday, May 30.
Meeting bright and early at 6:30 am in front of Goodlife Fitness, at Devonshire Mall, the riders will set out at 6:45 am sharp. Riders will follow the Grand Marais Drain Trail, the quiet streets of South Walkerville, and the Riverfront Trail, along the journey to the CBC at Riverside and Crawford, arriving by 8:00 am.
The first 50 participants to arrive at Devonshire Mall will receive a free gift, generously donated by Goodlife Fitness.
Once at the CBC, participants will enjoy a complimentary bagel breakfast with coffee, juice, and fresh fruit. There will also be an announcement of the recipient of the 2014 Commuter of the Year Award.
Send in your submission for Commuter of the Year to win over $200 in prizes.
Do you know a dedicated bicycle commuter? Someone who goes the extra mile to integrate bicycles into their day-to-day lives and encourages others to do the same, even if only through their example? Bicycle commuters epitomise the way in which health, the environment, and our community benefit from bicycle use.
If you know a seasoned or new commuter who should be recognised, tell us their story.
The Windsor Bicycling Committee is holding a Bike Commuter of the Year contest and the winner will receive a commemorative plaque, along with a Levi Strauss Commuter Denim Jacket ($148 value) and a gift certificate for a tune up ($65 value), courtesy of City Cyclery.
All entries must include the nominee’s name and e-mail address and a brief write-up (200 words or less) of why they deserve the Bike Commuter of the Year Award. The nominee must live or work in Windsor. Contest closes May 26, and the winner will be announced at the Bike to Work Day breakfast, on May 30. Self-nominations are welcome. Send nominations by email.
