The days might be getting shorter, colder, and wetter — but cycling advocates are hoping to keep commuters on two wheels.
Fall Bike to Work week kicks off Monday and Erin O’Melinn with “Hub” says it’s about reminding people cycle commuting works in all seasons.
“Well it’s hard for people to motivate themselves to get out when it’s darker and wetter. So we want to give people those easy tips and tricks on what they can wear, how to carry things so that they’re comfortable and dry in our wetter Vancouver winters.”
Melinn says in the eight years they’ve been running the event participation has doubled, and this year they’re hoping for more than five thousand registered riders.
She says riders will have access to tune ups and treats at pop-up stations around Metro Vancouver throughout the week.
