VIDEO: Community ride in Chilliwack Tuesday for Bike to Work Week

Starts at 7 a.m. at Sardis secondary, riders end at Celebration Station at FVRD office on Cheam Ave.

The Fraser Valley Regional District (FVRD) hosts a Community Ride to Work and Celebration Station on Tuesday, May 29 starting at 7 a.m.

The community ride starts at Sardis Secondary School (see below for route map) and will be led this year by FVRD Board Chair and Chilliwack City Councillor Jason Lum.

The ride route travels through Sardis and has a second meeting spot at the Sheffield Off Leash Dog Park between Britton and Webb avenues.

From there it goes along the rail trail and then follows bike lanes from Luckakuck to Young, finishing off at the FVRD office at 45950 Cheam Ave.

There, City of Chilliwack firefighters will be on hand at the Celebration Station, serving free breakfast sandwiches to all riders commuting to work or school that day. Additional refreshments will be provided by Produce Gone Wild and Clearbrook Coffee.

Riders will also be able to protect their bikes against theft by registering with 529 Garage, and receive a complimentary bicycle check from Pedalsport. There are lots of prizes to be won.

Cyclists not able to join the community ride are still encouraged to pop in to the Celebration Station and join the fun.

Last year more than 27,000 people took part in Bike to Work events across B.C., and 17,515 took part in Bike to School events.
