Calling all Kamloops cyclists and friends – New online sign-up sheet for survey volunteers!
We need as many bicyclists as possible to canvas businesses and encourage them to complete the Business Bike Parking Survey which is launching Sept 5.
Sign up online today to canvas businesses in September. Once you sign up, you’ll be entered in a draw to win a coffee gift card and you will get information about picking up the flyers and name tags for the project. Choose the area you will canvas and note that you’ll have the whole month of September to canvass. Sign up here: Bike Parking Survey Volunteer Shifts
If you have questions or problems with signing up, just email us! Make this fun and sign up a cycling friend to canvas with you!
Note to canvassers: Flyer pick-up will be from 10-12 Sat Sept 2 & 8 at the Farmer’s Market by the Bike Valet. Bring your questions too! If those times don’t work for you, email Kristin to make other arrangements!

Help make Kamloops a bike-friendly city! The Kamloops Cycling Coalition and Transition Kamloops, with support from the Chamber of Commerce and City of Kamloops, is launching an online survey to gain a local business perspective on the barriers and benefits of providing bike parking for customers and employees. The insights gained from this survey will be used to inform and update the City of Kamloops’ Active Transportation Plan. To ensure the survey’s success, we need volunteers to canvas businesses and encourage them to complete the survey by September 30th!
We’ve divided the city into 14 shopping areas, and we’d like to have 3 to 4 people visit the stores in each area during the month of September. Volunteers should plan on devoting a total of 2–8 hours to this canvas, whenever it suits you. Make it fun—invite a cycling friend to canvas with you!
Thank you for supporting bike parking in Kamloops!
