We've been awfully quiet lately. First it was cold and rainy, so I thought I'd take a break, and then we got some great sunny biking weather, so guess what I was doing!?
Earth Day in Pitt Meadows will be celebrated on Thursday April 19, in Hoffman Park, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. We'll have an information booth there, so drop by for a chat, some colouring sheets and word searches for the kids, or a free bike map. If you haven't seen a velomobile before, we'll have one on display. We're also offering free bike parking.
We'll be at the Earth Day celebrations in Maple Ridge in Memorial Peace Park on Sat. April 21, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. This year's event is going to be a blast! Ridge Meadows Recycling Society is celebrating its 40th anniversary, and they're blowing out all stops! Do check out the link to see all the awesome activities that are being planned for this day.
Recycling Depot on River Road. If you're not able to drop it off, send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we can arrange to have it picked up.
We'll have 2 draws: one at 10:00 (10:30) and one at 12:00 (12:30). Come check out the bikes and try them out. We will provide some helmets, but bring your own if you wish. 3 Winners of both the morning and the afternoon draws will get the chance to learn how to do some minor repairs on their 'new' bikes under the watchful eye of Dustin, a qualified bike mechanic (courtesy of Maple Ridge Cycle) or one of our own volunteers.
We will also have our Translink bus bike rack at this event, so don't miss this opportunity to practice this simple, but for some possibly intimidating, skill. Steve's velomobile will be there too, so if you didn't have a chance to admire it in Pitt Meadows, you'll have another opportunity. Finally, we will have free guarded bicycle parking.
Hope to see you, and your bike, on April 19 or 21!
