Get ready for Bike to Work Week on May 30 to June 5.

Why should you try cycling to work? Enhance your personal fitness. Save money on gas.

Benefit the environment by reducing green house gas emissions. If none of these reasons appeal to you, here are some more incentives.

Free food: There are three breakfast stations during BTWW from 6:30 to 8:30 a.m. Monday at Rehabilitation in Motion in Willow Point serving fresh pancakes; Thursday at the Christian School on Dogwood serving breakfast wraps; Friday at Outdoor Addictions & On the Rocks in Campbellton serving fresh home baked muffins.

Enter to win a bike! Spokes Bicycle Shop has donated a Kona Lanai Mountain bike as a draw prize.

Every time you attend a celebration station you get to enter the draw for the bike.

Enter to win daily prizes: At every celebration station there will be lots of draw prizes donated by our sponsors.

Free movies: Head to the Sportsplex on Tuesday from 7-9 p.m. for the Bike Shorts film festival with complimentary popcorn and Koala Springs soft drinks.

Free BBQ: Wednesday from 4-6 p.m. at Spirit Square there will be a salmon barbecue compliments of Marine Harvest Canada.
