Try two wheels this month

The traditional May Bike to Work Week has been combined with an effort called Bike to Boogie to raise money for improvements to Shames Mountain through the My Mountain Co-op.

Participants are being asked to raise money based on the number of kilometres they cycle or for a one-time donation.

And to prepare riders, there are free bike repair and tune up sessions May 17 and 24 at the farmers market.

A commuter breakfast is planned for May 30 from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. in front of the My Mountain Co-op office and the Chill Shop with healthy snacks and prizes.

And a wrap-up barbecue will be at 2 p.m. June 1 at Shames Mountain for all Bike to Work Week and Bike to Boogie riders and supporters. It will also be the day of the Bike to Shames cycling event.

Bike to Boogie is optional and not required as part of Bike to Work Week.

Registration is on now at http://www.biketowork.ca/terrace for Bike to Work Week, which is May 26 to June 1.
