Winners of Pedalwise Summer/Fall Carbon Reduction Challenge announced
The purpose of the Carbon Reduction Challenge was to encourage Brampton Bike Hub’s Pedalwise protégés to use their bikes as often as possible to get to destinations. The Challenge did its job and then some!
Congratulate the winners at the Official Opening of Brampton Bike Hub’s bike cage on Wed Dec 19th 6:30pm at 50 Sunny Meadow Blvd, Unit 108. Ceremony begins at 7pm in underground parking, accessed from main lobby elevator. Bike cage sponsored by Region of Peel ‘Healthy Living Supports and PCHS.
Environment and Climate Change Canada’s EcoAction Community Funding Program, as well as our partner agency PCHS, has made this Challenge possible. BikeBrampton also thanks all the Protégés, our dedicated volunteer Mentors, Bike Mechanics, CAN-BIKE instructor, Velo-Canada-Bikes, Region of Peel and City of Brampton. The Bikeport by Kevin Montgomery set up and analysed the Strava Brampton EcoAction Club data to determine the winners.
