#PedalItForward for Bike to Work Day!
This year we are starting a new initiative called #PedalItForward. What is Pedal It Forward? It follows the same logic as Pay It Forward – it’s about demonstrating a gesture of kindness to a friend, family member, coworker or community and asking for nothing in return. However, when we #PedalItForward – this gesture involves a bike!

On Bike to Work Day, we’ll be encouraging cyclists to grab a would-be bicycle rider and #PedalItForward, by giving the gift of cycling to this friend! Use this opportunity to ride with your friends and family and bike to City Hall on May 29th in celebration of the incredible impact cycling has had on our community – and rejoice in the many opportunities for positive change that still exist!

Register for a chance to win!
Register for Bike to Work Day online for your chance to win one of three prize packs: a MEC Midtown bicycle & $300 voucher from VIA Rail.
