HUB’s Bike to Work Week

Bike to Work Week is a community event celebrating bike commuting across Metro Vancouver! Visit Celebration Stations offering free drinks, snacks, bike mechanic services and great prizes. The catch? Just get on your bike and ride.

Bike to work often? Help introduce it to your co-workers – start a team, or get your company to sign up for HUB workplace cycling workshops. After you register, spread the word with resources for your workplace, available at bikehub.ca/bike-to-work. The Team Leader who recruits the most new bike commuters this spring will get a new bike!

Help us break another record and get even more people on bikes across Metro Vancouver.
