As part of Bike to Work Week, Project Watershed is teaming up with the Broken Spoke to help you bike the estuary in style along the Courtenay Riverway walk with a special stop at Kus-kus-sum. Meet at the Broken Spoke at 9:30am. Participants are encouraged to bring their own bikes. If you don’t have a bike or would like to try something new, there are 4 electric bikes and 20 regular bikes available from the Broken Spoke.

The group will then go on a 1 1/2 hr ride to the K’ómoks Estuary with a special stop at Kus-kus-sum. Project Watershed staff will be along for the trip to fill you in on estuary facts and give you the low down on the Kus-kus-sum site. When the group arrives back at the Broken Spoke there will be lunch provided by Quality Foods for cyclists to enjoy. Participation by donation.

Cyclists should bring their own water bottle and dress for the weather. Children and youth who can bike confidently and keep up a 12 km/hr pace are welcome to participate. Other children, including those on run bikes, must be strapped into a child seat on their parent or guardian’s bike or in a bike trailer. Please use the form to RSVP so we know how many to expect. Bikes will be given out the morning of the event on a first come, first serve basis.
