There's a commuter breakfast tomorrow morning in Terrace for those who have been biking to work this week.

Enjoy a cycling breakfast in Terrace tomorrow

It's part of Bike to Work Week being held throughout the province

  • May. 29, 2014 12:00 p.m.

Bike to Work Week participants can enjoy a breakfast tomorrow morning to mark the end of the annual cycling event.

It begins at 7 a.m. at the restored CN foreman’s residence on the eastern end of the Grand Trunk Pathway and lasts until 9 a.m.

That’s the building containing Chill and My Mountain Coop, one of the sponsors of Bike to Work Week along with the City of Terrace and the Northern Health Authority.

In addition to food there’ll be prizes from participating businesses.

And on June 1, there’s going to be a barbecue and race at Shames Mountain.

Race preparations begin with registration at 11 a.m. at the Shames Access Road with the 13km race beginning at noon. The barbecue follows at the main ski lodge beginning at 2 p.m.

This event helps mark the end of Bike to Boogie, an effort in which people collect pledges for cycling with the money raised going toward improvements on Shames Mountain, which is owned by My Mountain Co-op.

“We were pleased to be able to join this bike race event with the last day of the Bike to Work Week event that is currently taking place. It should be a great day for people to come out to celebrate biking, getting outside, and our great mountain, Shames!” said race organizer Chloe Curtis.

Bike to Work Week and Bike to Boogie events were combined this year.

And here are some cycling notes provided by the Northern Health Authority:

• Being physically active for at least 150 minutes per week reduces the risk of premature death, heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, certain types of cancer, Type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis, and obesity

• Being physically active also leads to improved fitness, strength and mental health

• It’s good for the environment

• It relieves congestion on the roads and for parking

• Improves air quality

• A bike tune up is cheaper than paying for insurance and gas for your car
