Celebration Stations and Community Stations

Celebrations Stations are our most popular in-person activations during events. They are high-energy places where the community can visit to receive free basic bike maintenance, cycling information, and resources for a safe and happy ride.

Each station offers snacks, coffee (morning stations only), and a raffle prize giveaway!

Thank you, Vancity for sponsoring all the bike mechanics.

Map currently shows locations for October 3rd to October 7th, 2022.
