Well, if you haven't figured it out yet, last week was Bike to Work Week here in B.C..
As for P.G., I was hired by the Bike to Work Week PG Organizing Committee and the PG Cycling Club to coordinate the event. Basically I did all the icky stuff. The early morning icky stuff. The morning Celebration Stations had to be set up for 7:30am commuters, and there were lots of them. Every morning we hosted at least one station, and we added a couple afternoon stations this year which were great!
It was a fantastic week. I'm still working on a bunch of stuff: catching up on lost sleep, organizing photos, waiting for stats to come in, writing thank-you letters, meeting with Jill, getting ready for the prize drawing, and awarding prizes at City council meeting again this year. Great idea. Another chance to look awkward in public. Thanks Jill.
This year we got lots of media (radio, t.v., online media, newspapers...) and had our very own lovely photographer. So now there are lots of photos of our event (and next year's poster). It also means that if you came to the stations early/late or not at all, you can check out who was there later/earlier and how much fun you may have missed.
It's great! I really think next year is going to be huge for P.G.. YAY!
If you are interested, you can see our photostream here. Asia did a great job and she is for hire!
Here are some of the great photos of our event. More soon!
