February is Bike Wise month and one of the easiest parts to participate in is Bike to Work Wednesday. The first one is this Wednesday so get in to it, nothing tastes as good as a free drink. Here’s the official blurb:

Need a little ‘incentive’ to ride to work? How about a free coffee at a café near your workplace? We’ve scheduled 5 incentive days over the summer to reward you for your efforts. All you have to do is ride to work on the scheduled day, and call into one of the participating cafes below between 7am and 9am to collect your free coffee. Just show your bike helmet at the counter.

There will also be a prize draw on each day so you could win a $100 bike shop voucher. The more often you join us for coffee, the more chances you have to win. Make sure you fill in the entry form when you collect your coffee.

Wed 9 Feb • Wed 23 Feb • Wed 9 Mar • Wed 23 Mar • Wed 6 Apr

Participating Cafés: (7:00am – 9:00am)

Oh, and a big thank you to the cafés that get involved each year, thanks for supporting cycling on the Shore. I hope you pick up some extra business out of it.
I can almost see Mozaik Café in Constellation Drive from my workplace but had never been in there until this promotion last year. It has zero street appeal and looks like a corporate prison from the road, but the coffee was great and I have since returned!
