Last week, Habanero offered free bike tune-ups to downtown Vancouver cyclists in preparation for Bike to Work Week.
Rick Martin, Director of Finance and Performance, and Steven Fitzgerald, President, set a space to tune-up bikes in front of the main entrance to Habanero’s Vancouver office at 1111 Melville Street. The tune-ups were available from Tuesday to Thursday, and a steady stream of bicycles kept the repair team busy for most of the afternoon.
“It was great to get involved in the community and help people prepare for Bike to Work Week,” said Rick. “We’re big supporters of cycling and we’re happy to help anybody looking to take part in the event.”
Bike to Work Week is supported by local cycling advocacy group HUB. The event is all about growing the amount of bike traffic in Vancouver and raising awareness of the health and environmental benefits of cycling. Bike to Work Week Vancouver runs from May 27 to June 2.
