YXE gearing up for Winter Bike to Work Day!

For immediate release: Wed, 2019-01-23 08:34
TC19-142

The City of Saskatoon is hosting Winter Bike to Work Day YXE on Thursday, January 24, 2019: an initiative that encourages citizens to try winter cycling and to celebrate those who cycle year-round as part of their regular commute.

Anyone participating in Winter Bike to Work Day YXE should note the following tips and information:

  • Between 7 and 9 a.m., participating businesses and organizations will have commuter stations set up. Anyone on a bicycle is invited to stop for coffee, giveaways, or a chance to win prizes! Snap a photo at your stop and upload it to social media using the hashtag #BiketoWorkYXE to show us how your commute is going!
     
  • If you live too far from work to bike the entire way, consider taking Saskatoon Transit part of the way. Plan your trip using the app called Transit. All buses are equipped with front bike racks that are free and easy to use. The bike racks also accommodate fat tires (2" x 33").
     
  • If you are wondering how to dress and ensure your cycling equipment is up to speed, check out our Winter Cycling Tips prior to your commute.
