Winter Bike to Work Day – This Friday 13th, win prizes for biking to Town Hall/Wellbeing Fair

Hello All Employees,

This Friday (13th) is International Winter Bike To Work Day.  There are a number of great events happening around Burlington to celebrate. Commit to riding and show the world you are at: (there is some fun info and videos there too). Check out the worldwide events at the facebook page. Burlington is hosting its own event with the Annual Ride 365.

If your a first time winter biker, never fear, Local Motion is holding a Winter Biking Workshop on Thursday at SKIRACK 6p-7p. Free pizza, great biking tips, AND a raffle for an Ortlieb bike pannier. RSVP to:  We also have winter biking tips on our Transportation website.

Of course Champlain has our own awesome events on Friday with the Town Hall Meeting at 8.15 and the Wellbeing Fair at 9.30 (making it to the Burlington Ride 365 event might be tough)SO…we want to recognize any Champlainers that “Bike to Town Hall/Wellbeing Fair” by giving out a few wee prizes (coffee, maple syrup and bike benefits).  Simply visit the Active Transportation table at the Wellbeing Fair, tell me you biked to work (I will trust you) and you will be entered to win.  Drawing will be in the afternoon and winners emailed.
