Only 2 per cent of trips in the city are made by bicycle, according to the Kelowna Cycling Coalition. So why aren't we using bikes?
The coalition is hosting a talk by Kay Teschke
to encourage more people to ride.

She's a professor at UBC's School of Population and Public Health.

Her talk, Tuesday night is called "Motivating Citizens to Bicycle."
