Crazy Sustainable Commute – full length

August 30, 2010

On Friday we mentioned that the Fairware Team participated in the Crazy Sustainable Commute, a crazy fun event all about raising awareness on taking sustainable transportation to and from work. 5 of our staff participated by riding tiny bikes borrowed from some really cool kids we know (thanks guys!). Below is a video featuring clips from our trip.

This morning Fairware participated in the Crazy Sustainable Commute, a crazy fun event all about raising awareness on taking sustainable transportation to and from work. We’re making a longer video documenting our team on tiny bikes, but for now here’s Nicole starting her commute.

Translink cycling patch kits and bands

April 29, 2010

Last year Fairware responded to a request from Translink (the organization responsible for regional transit cycling and commuting options in Metro Vancouver) for products to help promote their alternative transportation campaigns – particularly their focus on encouraging cycling as a complement to public transit.

We came up with some inexpensive & useful products – the bike tube patch kits and reflective bands pictured above. Each patch kit featured a dozen glueless patches, all contained in a pocket-sized metal tin. The reflective bands were made in Canada and featured highly reflective tape on an adjustable Velcro strap.

Did you know that in Vancouver you can take your bike on almost any bus, the Skytrain, Seabus and Westcoast Express commuter trains?

Are you contemplating a Bike to Work week campaign? Or do you want to promote your efforts to get people out of cars and onto bikes? We carry a full range of bicycle accessories, apparel, bags and more. View the full selection HERE.
