Announcement Date: June 1, 2000
Bike Month, an annual celebratory campaign aimed at promoting bicycling in BC, was started. Bike Month built on and is testament to the success and growth of previous Bike Week and Bike to Work Week campaigns. June was officially declared as Bike Month in the Province of BC by the Minister of Transportation and Highways, Harry Lali. After building awareness with unprecedented media coverage, after ten years we felt enough ground had been covered, and focused our efforts on making sustainable transportation choices easier. Another feature of Bike Month was our annual Clean Commute Breakfast, a celebratory media event promoting sustainable commuting and volunteers tested out their pancake making skills!
