HUB Cycling

HUB Cycling is a charitable non-profit organization that has spent over 25 years removing barriers to cycling in Metro Vancouver while cultivating active transportation's health, environmental, and economic benefits. HUB has educated thousands of people, motivated thousands more, and championed improvements such as #UnGapTheMap to create a connected cycling network.

HUB Cycling’s mission is to get more people cycling more often. We make cycling better through education, action and events. More cycling means healthier, happier, more connected communities. We’re leading the way in making cycling an attractive choice for everyone.

HUB Cycling has close to 3,000 members and more than 65,000 direct supporters. HUB Cycling has ten volunteer committees across Metro Vancouver that encourage cycling for all ages and abilities (AAA) in Metro Vancouver. 

HUB Cycling was established in 1998 (originally named the Vancouver Area Cycling Coalition) to improve cycling conditions in Metro Vancouver. 

We acknowledge that HUB Cycling, through our various projects, operates on the traditional and unceded territories of many Coast Salish People, including:

We acknowledge the harms of colonization experienced by Indigenous peoples and commit to working toward decolonizing our profession, communities, places of work and communities in which we deliver our programs.

Our Vision, Mission & Values

Vision - By 2030, more people in British Columbia cycle as a preferred mode of travel and recreation. This choice is supported by a culture that sees cycling as an essential mode of transportation and one which helps create livable, connected communities and healthy environments. All levels of government demonstrate their commitment to Vision Zero through education, policies and by increased investment in safe and comfortable infrastructure. 

Our Mission - To get more people cycling, more often.

Our Core Values: 

  • Community - We believe that cycling is an exceptional catalyst for creating healthy, happy, connected and livable communities. 
  • Sustainability - Cycling plays a fundamental role in meeting the social and environmental needs of the people of British Columbia. 
  • Collaboration - Working with all stakeholders - the general public, the private sector, and the public sector - is pivotal as the best results for improved cycling infrastructure, training and promotion come from working together.
  • Inclusivity - We welcome and celebrate the diversity of all British Columbians through our work. We also recognize that socio-economic and cultural barriers must be acknowledged and considered through our advocacy, training and promotion.
  • Innovation - Through the power of creativity, proactivity, and innovation we will adapt to and create new opportunities to introduce positive change and reach more people. 
  • Responsibility - We are accountable to our members, supporters, and the general public through our promotion, education and advocacy for cycling improvements. Evidence-based decisions, transparency, integrity and dialogue are core to how we conduct our work. This fosters trust among all stakeholders.
