Meet this year's emcee, Steve Tornes
Steve is an SFU alumnus with a MA in Urban Studies who has an inexhaustible passion for all things related to urban planning, data, politics, and literature. Throughout his studies, he has focused on how transportation collides with space, equity, and everyday mobilities — with these interests culminating in his thesis on the Vancouver Bike Share Program. Steve is also the creator of the Trip Diary, an original Below the Radar podcast mini-series examining how we move through urban spaces.
This year's winners
Arno Schortinghuis Cycling Champion of the Year Award
HUB Cycling is honoured to be able to name a Cycling Champion of the Year Award after Arno Schortinghuis, memorializing his lifetime of dedication to improving cycling conditions and bettering people’s lives. This award will recognize cycling achievement.
In 2022, we were delighted to present the award to a prominent figure in promoting cycling as a viable method of transportation in Vancouver. Mia Kohout, general manager at Mobi by Shaw Go, was awarded for her leadership in expanding Vancouver’s first bike-share program and founding Metro Vancouver’s Bike to Work Week in 2007.
