Bike to Work Week 2016

It's spring time in the Fraser Valley, and that means that it's time to break out those bikes! UFV will once again be participating in the provincial campaign Bike to Work Week. Not only are we saving gas, we're also contributing to personal and environmental health. It's a win-win situation all around. 

This year, Bike to Work Week is giving away fantastic prizes for those who bike - whether it's to work, school, or the grocery store. The grand prize is a trip for two to Vietnam! You definitely don't want to miss out on these prize draws. 

The UFV Centre for Sustainability and Athletics and Campus Recreation have partnered up to bring you some great events over the next two weeks. Athletics & Campus Rec will be giving away personal locker rentals as well as personal training sessions. Other great prizes include healthy snacks and items to keep your bike in shape.
