Congratulations to Kurt Headrick from Bureau Veritas Laboratories
for winning the $500 Sport Chek Gift Card.
Meet Kurt Headrick. His passion for cycling has him staying active all year-round. Not only does Kurt ride his bicycle for leisure, but he also chooses it as his main mode of transportation to work, for business purposes and running errands.
“I commute by bike year-round and have found it to be good for my health (physical & emotional), the environment, and my pocketbook. Even in winter, there is not much difference in time to commute or for errands vs. driving.” When Kurt heard about the Bike Month Ontario promotion through email, it was only natural for him to continue to log his activity on the Active Switch online tool which he says is very convenient and easy to use.
“I already bike almost every day, says Kurt, “but the chance to win a prize for something I am already doing provided additional encouragement to continue my goal of using my bicycle as much as possible.
”When asked what advice he would give to someone who is hesitant about cycling, Kurt recommends individuals to “start slow with relaxing leisure rides, make sure your bike is maintained and dress for the weather.”
