● Don’t forget – May is Bike to Work Month in Ottawa.

Each year the Bike to Work Month campaign encourages people to use their bicycles to commute to work in May, and gives them a chance to win over $10,000 in all sorts of prizes from local businesses.

Prizes include a hybrid bike from Kunstadt, a table for 10 at Yuk Yuks, an overnight stay at the Wakefield Mill Hotel & Spa, one night at the Embassy Hotel & Suites, a Shimano backpack from Phat Moose Cycle, Axiom Panniers from Full Cycle, train travel certificate from VIA, and much more.

In order to be eligible to win a prize, you have to sign up at www.biketoworkottawa.ca, and then log your bike commutes in May. Prizes are drawn randomly from people participating in the Bike to Work campaign.

To help you get started, the organizers of Bike to Work Month have produced a handbook with tips and other useful information.
