Bike To Work Week is back for fall in Vancouver next week, offering free coffee, snacks, prizes and bike repairs at over 40 celebration stations along bike routes in the city.

Emma Cunnington, Bike to Work Week manager, says the event aims to remind residents it’s often faster to choose two wheels – even in the fall and winter months.

“There is often a perception that cycling is slower than driving to work – but in fact it can be the fastest mode for some trips, especially during rush-hour,” said Cunnington.

“And if you factor in needing less time at the gym or fewer hours working to pay $5,000-$10,000 a year in car ownership costs – cycling saves you even more time.”
