Cycling can be one of the fastest ways to get around!

Did you know, you can travel five times further on bike for the same amount of time and energy expended as walking? For most trips under 5 kilometres, which account for 50 per cent of car trips in Metro Vancouver, a bicycle is faster in urban settings.

There is no better time to try cycling than during Go by Bike Week, May 30 to June 5.

It’s a week-long behaviour change campaign aimed to showcase how resilient cycling is as a mode of transportation. During the week-long event, HUB Cycling encourages people to get out and ride their bikes anywhere and everywhere.

Log your trips online at bikehub.ca/gbbw for a chance to win great prizes, track your kilometers, and see how many greenhouse gas emissions you’ve saved. This spring’s grand prize is a cycling adventure for two to Holland. Weekly prizes include Compass Cards with Stored Value.

Make sure to visit the Celebration Stations and Community Stations to receive free basic bike maintenance, cycling information, and resources for a safe and happy ride. Each station also offers snacks, morning coffee, and raffle prize giveaways including a prize bundle from TransLink!

Don’t forget! When you combine cycling with transit, you can travel even faster and further. Metro Vancouver has facilities and infrastructure that make combining cycling with transit easy, safe, affordable, and convenient. Bikes are welcome onboard transit — including our buses, which are all equipped with bike racks.

Let’s ride.
