About Go by Bike Week:

Event Dates: Monday, October 3 - Sunday, October 9, 2022.

Since 2007, Go by Bike Week (formerly known as Bike to Work Week) has motivated 167,000 participants to cycle their daily commute including 26,000 new cyclists. Go by Bike Week is a week-long celebration of cycling, encouraging everyone across Metro Vancouver to give cycling a try.

This fall, we’re excited to show people that cycling doesn’t need to stop when summer ends. Weather and darkness are the main reasons that Go by Bike Week participants cite for not riding more, but Metro Vancouver has a climate where cycling can work year round as long as people have the knowledge, motivation and proper gear to cycle safely. Fall Go by Bike Week aims to show people that cycling can be safe, comfortable and fun year-round!

To participate, people register, go for a bike ride, then log their ride on HUB Cycling’s free online tracking tool at bikehub.ca/gbbw. The tool encourages friendly competition, gives the opportunity for people to win great prizes, track how far they’ve cycled, and see how many greenhouse gas emissions they’ve saved. This fall, the more trips you log, the more prizes you’re eligible to win! And ALL cycling trips count, whether you’re cycling to work, to school, to meet a friend, or for recreation. 

Throughout the week, people can also visit any of HUB Cycling’s 25 in-person “Celebration Stations” across Metro Vancouver to receive free basic bike maintenance, snacks, cycling information, and enter prize draws! HUB Cycling will also be sharing tips and tricks on how to cycle safely in rainy weather, what to wear, proper light usage in the dark and more.

As always, registration and participation for Go by Bike Week is 100% free. You can register as a team, join an existing team, or ride solo. Participants can register before or during the event at bikehub.ca/gbbw. If you’ve already participated in the past, then simply log a trip to re-register yourself for this event.
