We're partnering with the City of Kitchener for Bike Month to bring you the experiences of the city's Bike2Work Challenge participants as they learn the ins and outs of cycling to work.
Here are some thoughts on getting started this week from Bike2Work Challenge participant Chris:
Did the last week feel long to you, too? Well, let me tell you, if Ziggy’s Cycle and Sport Ltd. had given you a brand new bike at BikeFest last Sunday and made you wait to actually use it until today, then last week did feel long! But hey, I’m not complaining. Quite the opposite! The super friendly staff at Ziggy’s has done an excellent job getting us all ready for this first day of our Bike2Work Challenge. From custom fitting bikes and helmets to teaching us how to properly shift gears and fix a flat tire to lots of tips and tricks on how to safely ride and securely park these speedy new bikes.
So today, the challenge finally began! And I am wondering how many of us hit the roads this morning. Gauging from the enthusiasm and excitement I sensed at Ziggy's on Saturday morning, I wouldn't be surprised if it was 16/16!?
