Ottawa is a great place to ride your bike any time of year, but June is Let’s Bike Month. The EnviroCentre, in partnership with the City is offering a series of workshops, events and promotions during Let’s Bike Month.

Visit Letsbike.ca for a full list of activities, including your opportunity to win prizes. To participate, simply sign up as an individual or as part of a team, then log your bike rides throughout the month. It’s fun, healthy, good for the environment and if you log at least one ride, you will be eligible to win prizes. It’s a regular win-win-win-win situation.
