 Bike to Work Week is an annual initiative encouraging more people to commute to work by bicycle.  This year Bike to Work Week took place May 27 to June 2.  Team “School District 82 Complex,” including the School Board Office, North Coast Distance Education School, Facility Services, Student Support Services and IT Department, had 24 participants: 17 cyclists, 5 walkers, and 2 carpoolers. By commuting to and from work cyclists logged over 400km, which translates into over 80kg of Greenhouse Gas emissions saved.  

Some participants stated that cycling was a fun way to get to work, making for a refreshing start and an increase in positive energy, while cycling home was noted as a great way to unwind and enjoy a few moments closer to nature.  Way to go Team School District 82 Complex!
