For Bike to Work & School Week (May 27-June 2), we are featuring a number of community members who are champions for cycling, whether it be to work, school, or commuting around town.
Today we'll meet Anna Kandola, a Dietitian and Kinesiologist in Mackenzie.
Why do you bike to work and what do you like most about it?
We decided it would be a good option instead of having a second car - better for health, finances and the environment. It wakes me up and gives me more energy through the day to have had a bit of activity in the morning!
What do you think your community needs in order to make it easier for more people to bike to work OR school?
More bike racks available in the winter.
Any biking tips you’d like to share?
I have studded tires for winter riding which seem to help a lot. The chariot makes it so we can transport our daughter easily, so I can’t use her as an excuse not to bike.
A big thank you to Anna for sharing some ideas on how to make biking an easier option year-round!
