The culture in North America is to drive your car to your local shop and buy as much as you need for weeks at a time. There’s a better way to go shopping and that’s by bike!

Give shopping by bike a try during HUB Cycling‘s Bike to Shop, Aug. 13-21. We’re a proud sponsor! Local businesses in neighborhoods across Metro Vancouver are offering amazing freebies and sweet deals for people biking to their businesses.

Visit one of several Knowledge HUBs around the region for free snacks, to enter for a chance to win prizes (including a Compass Card loaded with Stored Value), learn tips and tricks on carrying groceries home by bike, and learn how to find safe bike routes to shopping destinations. Practice how to use the bike rack on buses at the following Knowledge HUBs:

  • Granville Island (Vancouver) – Saturday, Aug. 13, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
  • Cathedral Square (Downtown Vancouver) – Saturday, Aug. 13, 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Steveston Village (Richmond) – Sunday, Aug. 14, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Combine cycling with transit, and unlock even more of the region than via cycling alone. Plus, TransLink is offering special offers and discounts to many of your favourite summer spots as part of Ride and Shine. To access these offers, show your Compass Card or proof of fare at participating attractions and locations.
