A little pedal power is all you need.
This week marks Bike to Work Week in Smithers with several events planned throughout the next few days.
Here’s a list of the week’s events:
“I do want to highlight our Thursday station and Bovill Square. That’s our kids’ special celebration station from 11 to 12 p.m,” Event Coordinator Sheena Miller told MyBulkleyLakesNow. “We have a Buck-A-Beer at Bulkley Valley Brewery. They’re donating a dollar for every pint you have to our cause for Bike to Work Week because it does cost money to put this on and a lot of us are using our own equipment to make this happen.”
Due to some of the events this week, there will be a few street closures as a result:
- McBike Celebration on Wednesday will see a closure of 2nd between Queen and Main.
- Bovill Square School Celebration on Thursday will see a closure of Broadway between Main and Queen.
- Grendel Celebration on Friday will see a closure of 2nd between Main and King. Barricades will be set up from intersection on King to Grendel Group.
