Ride your bike to work on Thursday, February 13!

For immediate release: February 12, 2020 - 8:00am
TC20-1027

Cycling is cost effective, fun, healthy, and better for the environment! The City is hosting its second Winter Bike to Work Day on Thursday, February 13, 2020.

The goal is to inspire Saskatonians to think of cycling as a regular means of transportation and to experience the benefits of arriving at work feeling refreshed, energized and alert.

Anyone participating in Winter Bike to Work Day should note the following tips and information:

  • Between 7 and 9 a.m., participating businesses and organizations will have commuter stations set up. Anyone on a bicycle is invited to stop for coffee, giveaways, or a chance to win prizes! While stopped at a commuter station or when safe to do so during your commute, snap a photo and upload it to social media using the hashtag #BiketoWorkYXE and #BYXE to show us how your ride to work is going!
     
  • If you live too far from work to bike the entire way, consider taking Saskatoon Transit part of the way. Plan your trip using the Transit app and Google Transit. All buses are equipped with front bike racks that are free and easy to use. The bike racks also accommodate fat tires.
