Rolling with it
This year, Bike to Work/School Week looks a little different. For 2020, it doesn’t matter where you’re heading—if you’re on a bike, we want to celebrate it on social media (hot tip: this involves prizes).
The City of Whitehorse has arranged for physically distant activities including bike bingo and a scavenger hunt. We’re also interested in seeing you share your cycling style—the who, what and how of where you’re riding. Read below for more details and visit www.whitehorse.ca/bikeweek for downloadable Bike Bingo cards and Scavenger Hunt clues!
We want to see how you’re getting around during Bike Week YXY. Share photos of your cycling style, where you’re exploring and what crazy loads you’re carrying for a chance to be entered into a draw to win great local prizes. Be sure to tag us with #BikeWeekYXY before June 15, and make sure your photo is set to Public so we can see it! Photos submitted may be used for future City of Whitehorse promotions.
Download your #BikeWeekYXY bingo card and start checking off the boxes. Changed a bike tire? That’s good for a square! Biked to a new place? That’s another one! Fill your card by June 15 for a chance to be entered into a draw for local prizes.
