Winter Bike to Work Day Volunteers Needed!

Happy New Year Bike Calgary!
We have two great events coming up and we need your help!
The first is the U of C Cycling Exhibition on January 22, 2018. We'll need two people during lunch time to discuss and answer questions on winter commuting.
The second, Winter Bike to Work Day, takes place on February 9th and we'll need about 4 volunteers on the day of the event to help set up. If possible, we're also looking for 2 people to help with pre-planning. This will include the following tasks below: 
  • Outreach to bike shops and bike groups to invite them to have a display table at the event / offer prizes
  • Draft a media release and an invite to the City of Calgary staff 
  • Create an event poster that can be shared via social media / website / be sent with the media post
If you're interested in helping out, please don't hesitate to contact us at volunteer@bikecalgary.org as soon as you can. We had some great volunteers in 2017 and we're excited to see more join our organization in 2018!

Chris and I are attending the U of C Cycling Exhibition on January 22nd. We're both long time winter cyclists. If you don't get enough volunteers, then we can cover Bike Calgary's table and talk about winter gear. We'll be cycling there with our bob trailer full of stuff. We spoke at U of C last year about winter cycling. 

As well, we have not had an invitation to WBTWD, but will attend and hand out Papa Chocolat just like we do every year.
