Cycling is an environmentally friendly, cost effective and healthy way to get around and with Spring Bike to Work Week coming up, this is the perfect opportunity to start pedaling to work and maybe win some sweet prizes!
What is Bike to Work Week?
Bike to Work Week, or BTWW for the cool kids, is a community event to celebrate bike commuting across Metro Vancouver. With over 75 Celebration Stations offering free drinks, snacks, bike mechanic services and great prizes, why wouldn’t you register to enjoy the outdoors and commute in a fit and fun way?!?
Getting involved is easy! Here’s the breakdown:
**Please note** If you are or have ever been a HUB member, please login before registering. If you registered for Bike to Work Week between 2014 and 2016 you do not need to re-register. Simply login and log a trip to be a participant in the 2017 event.
Some of the great events surrounding this year’s BTWW include a free ‘bike-in’ movie night on May 27 at Queen Elizabeth Theatre Plaza and a free wrap-up BBQ on June 2 at Creekside Park near Science World.
If you need more inspiration, check out HUB’s 2017 Rush Hour challenge! Each year teams of three take cars, transit, and of course bikes, and race through Metro Vancouver to see which mode will come out on top!
Who rolled to victory? Watch the recap of our Instagram story and see!
