Now that Bike to Work Day 2021 is officially over, we are happy to announce the cyclist count for this year!
We tallied up the cyclist count from the 8 Energy Stations and it added up to a grand total of 1730 cyclists! That means, Bike to Work Day founder, Lonny Balbi, happily donated $1730 to Two Wheel View. Here he is with some of the TWV team (Hank and Pat) handing over the cheque.
Thank you to all of you who participated, from those who came out just for a quick ride to go back home and work, to the everyday commuters, and everyone else who joined us for the love of cycling.
Two Wheel View, which just celebrated its 20th anniversary, is an incredible local charity that provides programs that use the bicycle as a vehicle for change in the lives of youth. The organization was started by Rick and Tanya McFerrin who brought their experiences and perspectives from cycling around the world here to offer young people the opportunity to learn leadership, health and wellness, self-esteem, achievement, and environmental stewardship.
Two Wheel View will take bike donations and even has some for sale!
We are looking forward to seeing you all again on May 6, 2022 at next year’s Bike to Work Day!
