The West Kootenay Cycling Coalition with the support of our partners is gearing up to launch Go By Bike Week here in Nelson. This primarily free series of fun community biking activities that promote cycling as a healthy mode of transport and gives Nelson a reason to be involved!
The week-long schedule of COVID-19 compliant activities are just around the corner and will be sure to put a smile on your face from Sept. 28 to Oct. 4. For the young and young at heart there is something for everyone. Try out our bike to school or work challenges, while Go By Bike registrants can also check in with our participating Celebration Stations to pump up your tires or get bike tech help. Do you work from home? We’ve got you covered with our Work from Home, Homework challenge.
Cooks in the crowd can create their best bike flapjack to enter our online Flapjack Photo Contest. Learn rules of the road while physically distancing when you pre-register for one of our limited capacity Bike Safety rodeos. Celebrate art in the city and take a ride down mural lanes, kick back at the end of the day and watch the film MotherLoad from the comfort of your own home.
Register for free as a solo rider or team at gobybikebc.ca and check out our full event schedule on our Nelson community page at gobybikebc.ca/nelson . Remember to log your ride(s) during the week to be eligible for the provincial grand prize and local draw prizes.
