About Bike to Work Week

Bike to Work Week (BTWW) encourages people to commute to work via bicycle. Riding a bike to work instead of commuting via car promotes healthy lifestyles and prevention of health issues through regular exercise! The Sea to Sky Clean Air Society supports this mandate and is coordinating the event in Whistler, Pemberton and Squamish.

Bike to Work Week aims to encourage residents to cycle to work (or school) during the event, with the objective that participants will continue to commute by bicycle on a regular basis. Commuting to work is a significant cause of carbon emissions in the Sea to Sky airshed and choosing to cycle instead, even occasionally, can have dramatic results.

Bike to Work Week’s essential components include:

  • Engagement of workplaces among a wide variety of organizations large and small
  • Engagement of employees as team leaders–participation and registration is done through a team leader model—Team leaders in each workplace (champion volunteers) inform and motivate their co-workers
  • Website tools and resources that provide convenient, free, online registration and a participant reporting system, allowing us to collect data and measure results for each region
  • Celebration Stations and / or events supported by sponsors and volunteers throughout the community
  • An exciting incentive program of prizes for individuals and communities
  • Promoting cycling safety through the website and Celebration Stations

Bike to Work Week helps build more vibrant, green, healthier communities in which to live and work!
