Today is Clean Air Day, and to celebrate, the Municipality of Chatham-Kent Parks and Open Spaces, in partnership with CK Public Health, encourages residents to participate in this year’s Bike Month.
Bike Month takes place from June 1 to June 30 and encourages residents to rediscover the benefits of cycling, which can improve public health by increasing physical activity, while also reducing greenhouse gas emissions to improve the air we breathe.
Residents are being encouraged to participate by snapping a photo of themselves or their families cycling throughout the communities in Chatham-Kent.
Participate to have your photo featured on the Chatham Kent Trails Facebook Page, the Trails Chatham Kent Instagram Page and CK Public Health social media, and to win one of several prize packs.
Each week three photos will be chosen and featured.
How to enter:
- Snap a photo of yourself or your family cycling.
- E-mail the photo to CKTrails@chatham-kent.ca.
- Include the names of everyone featured in the photo (first and last names).
- Include the location of the photo including the community and trail or street name.
Residents can learn more about Chatham-Kent’s bike lanes, trails, active transportation and safe cycling here.
