Bike to Shop Days

Bike to Shop Days is a free community event that celebrates cycling for transportation and demonstrates how fun, convenient and affordable it is to make trips by bike. From June 22nd to 24th, you can score discounts at local shops, join guided rides and visit celebration stations. At our celebration stations you can get your bike tuned up, learn how to carry items by bike, and win prizes!

Registration is free and helps HUB Cycling gain valuable data that we can share with local businesses and decision-makers. We want to show stores and city planners the importance of bikes as an attractive, active, ecological and economical mode of transportation.

Get Involved

Register your business

Bicycles and local businesses make a great match! People that shop by bike choose businesses closer to home, shop more frequently and often spend more money over time than those who drive.

Businesses can participate in Bike to Shop Days from June 22nd-24th by providing an incentive or promotional offer to people who arrived at their shop by bicycle.  All discount providers will be added to our online map that will direct shoppers into your store, giving you great visibility and access to thousands of shoppers throughout the event. Printed “Bike to Shop Days” window posters will be available to participating merchants.

FAQs

There aren’t any celebration stations in my neighbourhood but I’d like to participate. Can I bike-to-shop in my area?

Absolutely! Anyone in Metro Vancouver can register free for bike to shop day to be eligible for the grand prize. You can be part of the event just by showing your support and biking to your favourite shops from June 22nd-24th.

Do I need to log my shopping trips to be entered to win prizes?

No – simply register free online. Unlike Bike to Work Week, we will not be asking participants to log their trips for Bike to Shop Days this year. We will be sending a post-event survey where you can let us know what types of trips you made and share your bike to shop day experience with us.

I work for a business that would like to get involved. Who should I contact?

We’d love to hear from you! There are a number of ways businesses can support Bike to Shop Days - offering prizes, food and beverage donations, or becoming a Bike to Shop Days discount provider - to name a few. E-mail us at events@bikehub.ca and we’ll be happy to chat about these opportunities with you.

When is the deadline to register to win?

Register by midnight on Sunday, June 24th and you’ll still be entered to win our grand prize.
