The weather didn’t cooperate for the whole week, but Elk Valley cyclists was still pedalling away like demons for the 2022 GoByBike week, held between May 31 and June 5, with over 7,000 km logged by riders in just Fernie.
There were official events through the week, with bike maintenance lessons, a social ride on June 1, and the ‘Ride with Librarians’ on June 2.
“Special shout out to the Fernie Heritage Library for hosting two of the events and being a big advocate of the week,” said local GoByBike coordinator Danielle Wiess.
As of June 9, there were 25 teams registered in Fernie for the week, with 176 individual riders signed up. Riders rode as individuals or as part of the teams, and together they clocked in 7,142km between them.
Neighbouring Sparwood also clocked in some km, with six riders there adding another 181 km to the valley’s (recorded) total, while four riders in Elkford logged 38km.
