HUB Cycling’s Go by Bike Week returns to Metro Vancouver from May 31 to June 6 to celebrate cycling in all its glory.
Go by Bike Week is a weeklong behavior-change campaign aimed to showcase the resilience of cycling as a mode of transportation. During the event, HUB Cycling encourages people to get out and ride their bikes anywhere and everywhere.
Participants are encouraged to log their bike trips during the week at btww.ca for a chance to win great prizes, track kilometres, and see how many greenhouse gas emissions have been saved by “going by bike”. All bike trips count—trips to work, the grocery store, the gym, for leisure, and beyond.
The event features free webinars on cycling that cover a range of topics including Intro to City Cycling, Cycling for All Abilities, Cycling for the Body and Mind, Cycling for Sustainable Cities, and Intro to E-Bikes. It also includes online yoga classes, free bike maintenance offered at select bike shops across Metro Vancouver (which is especially hard to come by these days), and a chance to win amazing prizes by logging your trips. Check out the full event schedule here.
This year’s grand prize is a cycling adventure for two, “Cycling the Dalmatian Coast” in Croatia, sponsored by Exodus Travel. Participants can also win daily prizes by logging their bike trips at btww.ca from May 31 to June 6.
As always, registration for the event is free. Be a part of this cycling celebration and register for Go by Bike Week at btww.ca.
This week, the Ride Hour Challenge returns—a weeklong event showcasing how local champions use one hour of their day outside on their bikes. Until May 30, HUB Cycling will reshare stories of how local leaders incorporate cycling into their lives and share it through Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
Share your own Ride Hour Challenge until June 6 by using the hashtag #RideHourChallenge and tagging HUB Cycling at @WeAreHUB on Facebook and Twitter, or @hubcycling on Instagram for a chance to win two Imagine Van Gogh tickets for June 11.
