Fall is a wonderful time to park your car and hop on a bike! Whether by pedal power or electric power, cycling can be one of the fastest, greenest, and most cost-effective ways to get around!

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.

Do we have you convinced and thinking of ditching four wheels for two? Fall Go by Bike Week is on from October 3-9 and is the perfect time to try it out.

Go by Bike Week, presented by HUB Cycling, is a week aimed at showcasing the resiliency of cycling as a mode of transportation. During the week-long event, participants are encouraged to get out and ride their bikes anywhere and everywhere.

How to take part in fall Go by Bike Week

Register online at Make and log your cycling trips for a chance to win great prizes, track your kilometers, and see how many greenhouse gas emissions you’ve saved. This fall’s grand prize is a cycling adventure for two to Tuscany. 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.
