Bike to Work Day – Celebrating Cycling in Hamilton on May 30th
Green Venture is supporting Smart Commute’s Bike to Work Day on Monday May 30th with our staff taking part in the events of the day and riding to work in various Group Rides.
Bike to Work Day is an excellent way to celebrate Hamilton as a “cycling and active community!” Individuals can choose to participate in many ways including Group Rides, as a Group Ride Leader, or if you prefer, riding solo on your own route.
Those riding downtown are joining in the Gore Park Bike to Work Day Celebration from 7:45 to 8:30am. While enjoying a snack you can meet other residents interested in cycling. Seasoned cycling commuters will be sharing tips on safe cycling and favourite routes throughout Hamilton.
You can learn tips to help maintain your bike and make your cycling commute easy and fun! Engage in conversation with city cycling staff and learn about what the city is doing to promote cycling in Hamilton.
Find out what you can do to improve cycling in your neighbourhoods and throughout the city. Come give the HSR bus bike rack a try at an onsite demonstration.
If your interested in joining a Group Ride or logging your own solo ride, check out the Smart Commute website for information on how to get involved.
