Better cycling infrastructure and business support are being credited for bringing out cyclists in droves for Bike to Work Week.
HUB Bike to Work Week Program Manager Laura Jane says the program saw record breaking numbers, with over 75 hundred people taking part.
She adds this year almost 60 percent of participants were women — up from 41 percent last year.
She says, “It’s generally accepted as well that more women on the roads is a really good indicator of safer bike infrastructure, becasue women tend to not bike on areas that aren’t as secure.”
She says more companies hosted bike workshops for employees and bike lock-up areas and showers were increased.
