Greetings from the directors of Cycle 16!

Here is an update on our activities:
• an application to Ministry of Transportation and Highways for a permit to build a trail in the Highway 16 right of way.
• applications for grants to fund trail design drawings.
• finalizing the right of way agreement through the Tersago property.
• application for charitable status for Cycle 16.
• preparations for hiring a project manager.

We have postponed the raffle for an e-bike with our partners the Rotary Club of Smithers, McBike & Sport and Giant bikes.

Input is welcome at any time. Sincere best wishes to you during these unprecedented times.

Stay healthy. Flatten the curve. Social distancing on your bike. ... See MoreSee Less

After careful consideration of the information and directives coming from the World Health Organization, the Public Health Agency of Canada, and British Columbia’s Medical Officer on the outbreak of COVID-19, the Go By Bike BC Society regrets to announce that we will be postponing our spring 2020 Bike To Work and School Week, which was scheduled to run May 25-31, 2020.

As COVID-19 continues to change the way we work, educate, and interact with friends and family, GoByBike BC hopes that you’ll continue to get outside and ride your bike.

Riding a bike is a great way to stay healthy (physically and mentally) while we live in a socially distanced world. Riding a bike gets you outdoors, experiencing nature, in touch with fresh air and the changing springtime climate, and it rarely brings you into close proximity with other people. Riding a bike also reduces your stress levels in times of uncertainty, like right now; and it allows us to experience the world in new and unexpected ways.

Stay healthy, keep #goingbybike, ride safe!

Right now, it is important for British Columbians to focus on social distancing-minimizing contact and preventing the spread of the virus.

Together, with our various partners and stakeholders, we are developing a plan to run the event at a later date, when it is safe to do so.

The situation with COVID-19 is evolving rapidly. Our main concern during this time is for your health and for the health of your communities. Thank you for your cooperation.
