District of Sechelt encourages Active Transportation in May

Posted: 1 years 362 days ago

Active Transportation Month on the Sunshine Coast is wrapping up with the province-wide initiative, Bike to Work and School Week from May 27 – June 2. Anyone riding a bike to work or school in Sechelt is invited to stop by the District of Sechelt’s Celebration Station on Tuesday May 28th from 7am – 9am in front of municipal hall on Cowrie St. at Ocean Ave. There will be free snacks, coffee, and special giveaways.

May is Active Transportation Month on the Sunshine Coast. This new initiative of the group Transportation Choices of the Sunshine Coast (TraC) encourages people to ditch their traditional car for the month and to try any other method of getting around. Register online at biketowork.ca and log kilometers for a chance to win one of many prizes.

In April the District of Sechelt awarded TraC with a Community Investment Grant for their Active Transportation Month initiative. “I look forward to bike to work week every year, it’s great to see so many people using active transportation in our community” said Mayor Siegers. The District is also supporting the initiative by temporarily separating pedestrian traffic from vehicle traffic along the Boulevard from May 18 – 31.  For more information on local Bike to Work Week activities and events, visit biketowork.ca/sunshine-coast or the TraC Facebook page @TraCSunshineCoastBC
