Bike to Work Week supports Head Injury Society

At the midweek barbecue in Spirit Square, sponsored by Marine Harvest, more than 200 salmon burgers were sold

While the number of teams and participants in Bike to Work Week 2013 was lower than in 2012, the enthusiasm and support from Campbell River cyclists was great.

At the midweek barbecue in Spirit Square, sponsored by Marine Harvest, more than 200 salmon burgers were sold, raising $1,500 for the Campbell River Head Injury Society.

Although the numbers were down and the weather not very cooperative, Campbell River’s participation in Bike to Work Week 2013 still trumped communities like Nanaimo, Squamish and Whistler. For Bike to Work Week 2013, Campbell River had 84 teams and 314 cyclists participating. They cycled a total of 11,965 kilometres, preventing 2,776 kilograms of greenhouse gases from entering the atmosphere. That is the equivalent of driving a mid-sized car for six months.  To see the full results for 2013 Bike to Work Week check out www.biketowork.ca
