for EVERY CYCLIST who participates in Bike to Work Day.
Friday, May 7, 2021
How it works:
It is with sadness that we must announce that we have POSTPONED Bike to Work Day 2020 due to increasing concerns regarding the COVID-19 virus and City sanctioned event restrictions. The health and safety of our participants, vendors, sponsors, volunteers and many others is our highest priority.
We are disappointed that Bike to Work Day will not be taking place on May 1, 2020, but it is our priority to provide a first-class fun event. We are hopeful that we will still be able to have Bike to Work Day in 2020.
Thank you for your patience and understanding during this uncertain time. We remain hopeful that the public health risk associated with COVID-19 will improve. We encourage everyone to follow the lead of public health officials throughout this process. We are continuing to evaluate the situation day-by-day. I will be in touch with information regarding a new date as soon as it becomes available to me.
If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out.
I hope you are (and remain) healthy and safe!
On May 7, 2021, Bike to Work Day will be celebrating its 14th annual year! BTWD brings together like-minded Calgarians to promote cycling as a viable means of transportation, reduce inner-city traffic congestion, and reduce pollution in the air. Cycling is a great addition to a healthy lifestyle and can be very cost effective – not to mention how much time is saved by not sitting in traffic. BTWD promotes a sense of community. With the effects of climate change weighing on our shoulders, biking to work is a simple way to reduce carbon emissions and our environmental impact.
Our event features Energy Pit Stops throughout downtown supported by Calgary’s bicycle retailers with swag and free bicycle tune ups, a free pancake breakfast, prizes, and numerous vendors down at the hub of BTWD at Eau Claire Market. Our hope is that by having our event early in the season that participants will enjoy the experience and it will inspire them to continue to ride their bicycles all year long. In order to inspire more participants, Lonny Balbi pledges to donate $1 for every participant to charity.
