In addition to the Energy Pit Stop Stations throughout downtown, there will be a festival event at Eau Claire Market in the North Plaza. There will be a FREE pancake breakfast, music, demonstrations, and local bike shops will be there to tune-up your bike, answer questions, and give out free stuff. This event is a great way to highlight the benefits of cycling, while socializing and getting some fresh air. Of course cycling is a healthy, efficient, convenient, low-cost and socially responsible means of transportation, and we know that it contributes to a reduction in inner-city traffic congestion and air pollution, but it's also a lot of fun!
BIKE TO WORK DAY 2019
Bike to Work Day's mission is to encourage people working in the downtown core and surrounding neighborhoods to try biking to work. This is in the hope that they might enjoy the experience and continue to cycle to work all year long. Of course there are people in the outer reaches that also bike to work - once you get a taste of the freedom - you might too.
*Note:This is a rain or shine event, and if we experience severe weather, the activities will be moved indoors at Eau Claire Market - inside the North entrance. *

Some of our Winners!
Bike to Work Day is celebrating its 14th year! On May 1, 2020 – BTWD will celebrate its fourteenth annual event with even more enthusiasm, more participants, and more fun! As with previous years, we will have different bicycle pit stops along Calgarys bikepaths, where you can receive tune-ups, (for you and your bike) and free giveaways. Everyone is encouraged to gather at Eau Claire Market for a free pancake breakfast, music and a chance to catch up with friends and colleagues. Did we mention that this is a great opportunity for vendors to promote their businesses, and for you to get your hands on some free swag? BTWD helps bring Calgarians together in sharing some common goals; promoting cycling as a viable means of transportation, reducing inner-city traffic, and of course reducing the pollution in the air we breathe. Cycling is a great addition to a healthy routine and it can be very cost-effective – not to mention, you look very socially responsible while reducing your carbon footprint.
Free Pancake Breakfast and Prizes!
Each year we host a free pancake breakfast at Eau Claire Market where a number of different Calgary bike shops set up to give away free stuff, educate, and do tune-ups on your bikes. There are also lots of contests and giveaways, so come on down and try to win a bike! This year our awesome Pancake breakfast will be served by none other than the Calgary Stampede Caravan!
