June 21, 2017
The 2017 Grand Prize Winner of the
Exodus Travels Trip to Croatia is...
Peter Wood, Vancouver, BC
Peter Wood, of Vancouver, BC, sold his car in 1996 and uses his bicycle primarily for transportation, “it’s a great way for city transport for my lifestyle,” says Wood. For longer trips, he adds public transportation, “the combination of my bicycle and public transport is generally sufficient for all my needs.”
Wood has been participating in Bike to Work Week for the last four years, “I fully support and appreciate HUB and all that they have done to advance cycling in Metro Vancouver,” he states. “I enjoy participating in Bike to Work Week! It’s nice to bike out in the morning to the Celebration Stations, have coffee, visit with other cyclists, and enjoy the comradery it brings. I really appreciate the bike mechanics that donate their time and skills at each station as well.”
When asked how he felt about winning the trip to Croatia, he says “I was shocked and ecstatic…I’m a bit of a traveler and I have always wanted to visit the Dalmatian Coast.”
Exodus Travels has been a grand prize trip sponsor for Bike to Work BC Society for the past four years. “Everyone at Exodus is thrilled to sponsor Bike to Work Week in BC,” says Robin Brooks, Marketing and PR Manager, Exodus Travels. “At Exodus we truly believe in giving back to our travelers, people in the communities we visit and the natural environment – it’s just central to our ethos. At Exodus we value relationships with organizations across the globe, from here in BC, to Morocco, Nepal, India, Laos, Africa – (and yes - we offer bike trips in all)!”
Exodus believes that a bike lets you travel at your own pace, has minimal environmental impact and best of all gets you outdoors (whether you’re a regular cyclist on a commute – or opting to take a vacation).
“A big congratulations to every one of you who participated in the event! It’s just magic to see the cyclists across the province come together. From biking aficionados, to first time riders, and families it’s just incredible and we can’t wait to participate again next year!”
“Encourage your family, friends and colleagues to get on their bikes – the world is always better by two wheels,” Brooks states.
