It's Bike to Work Week in BC. Many communities across the province will be celebrating this week meant to encourage residents to bike and walk to work and school. There are many benefits to cycling including increasing your overall health and reducing carbon emissions.
A great way to introduce yourself to cycling in Nanaimo is to use the E&N Trail. This 8 kilometre relatively flat multi-purpose trail spans from Rosehill Avenue in the south to East Wellington in the north. It provides connection points to many schools, businesses and shopping. You can even connect to the Parkway Trail via Dunster Road using the E&N Trail.
