Commuters are encouraged to leave their cars at home for one week and cycle to work, to celebrate Stellenbosch’s second Bike to Work week, from Monday October 10 to Friday October 14.
Why cycle to work? It is healthy and you are more productive at work. It allows you to escape traffic congestion, save petrol money and no longer search for parking. Why not challenge your friend, colleague or neighbour to leave their cars at work and cycle with you to work; and help make Stellenbosch a cycle-friendly town.
The Stellenbosch Bike to Work week project is supported by the Pedal Power Association. Stellenbosch Cycling is an initiative to encourage everyone to use bicycles for mobility, exercise and fun.
