On Monday, May 28, Smart Commute Markham, Richmond Hill (SCMRH) hosted the 11th annual Bike to Work Day group ride. Over 130 participants, 107 of those being enthusiastic cyclists, participated in the 6.5 km ride from WSP (100 Commerce Valley Drive West) to the Town of Richmond Hill (255 East Beaver Creek Road), which featured a portion of the newly implemented Lake to Lake Cycling Route and Walking Trail. Participants received a free Bike to Work Day t-shirt or SCMRH water bottle, continental breakfast, bike safety checks, stretching and soft tissue therapy, prizes and giveaways, and had the opportunity to explore cycling routes and trails from local municipalities and network with local cyclists.
SCMRH would like to thank all participants, vendors, sponsors, funders, and partners for their continued support in the Bike to Work Day group ride. SCMRH looks forward to participating in more events during Bike Month (May 28 – June 30) to encourage cycling to work.
