The City of Sault Ste. Marie (the City), the Sault Cycling Club (SCC) and Algoma Public Health (APH) are inviting area residents and businesses to bike and go green from June 3 – 9, 2023 for Bike to Work Week!

Bike to Work Week is a week-long event that encourages people to leave their cars at home and walk, cycle, carpool/ride-share, take transit or telecommute. #SooBikes2023 includes everything from getting groceries, riding to and from work or school, hitting the Hub Trail, trail rides, fat bike rides or other recreational rides exploring in and around Sault Ste. Marie. Getting around on smaller wheels like rollerblades and scooters (manual or electric) counts too!

Seven days of challenges have been organized to motivate community members and businesses. Watch for details everyday on the City, APH and SCC social media.
