Bike Week 2020

Bike Week 2020

The City of Charlottetown's virtual Bike Week is set to occur from June 13 – 20th.

Bike Week is a collection of cycling related events and initiatives to encourage a conscious effort to use active transportation. Due to COVID-19, this year’s programming will look a little different in order to follow guidelines from the Chief Public Health Office. 

This year's Bike Week includes:

Bike Maintenance and Cycling Safety Video Series:

The City has partnered with PEI Bike Guy to offer a video series on cycling safety and bike maintenance to be released throughout Bike Week. These short videos will be follow-along guides to simple bike repairs such as fixing a flat tire or adjusting the brakes, as well as important safety considerations.

Virtual Cycling Contest:

Residents can participate in a virtual cycling contest by sharing photos from their bike rides Charlottetown during Bike Week.

Looking for a fun spot to pose? Check out the cycling photo backdrop, created by local artist Jordan Cameron, located near the Charlottetown Farmers Market on the Confederation Trail.

All posts will be entered for the chance to win a selection of prizes, including cycling-related products as well as local goods and gift cards. To enter, residents can post a photo using #ibikecharlottetown to social media (Facebook, Twitter or Instagram), each post of a different ride counts as a separate entry. Posts must be set to public in order to be received.

Bike to Work Day:

Friday, June 19 will be declared Bike to Work Day. Residents are encouraged to cycle, or use any other mode of active transportation, to get to work or wherever they may need to travel. Workplaces that post photos of participants, tagging the City of Charlottetown, will be entered in to win an office coffee break for up to 25 people.
