We are thrilled to support organizations and building managers across Metro Vancouver to become more Bike Friendly.  

We offer both services and expertise to enhance people’s cycling experiences, going beyond the basics required bylaws. We deliver a cost effective business advantage that benefits many aspects of your operations and your brand - top of which are employee wellness and productivity, and lessening environmental footprints.

 

Workplace Cycling Workshops for Work Teams

 

These fun, interactive and on-site workshops and lunch n' learns are part of the HUB Bike Friendly Business Program and are 1-2 hour sessions for staff of all riding abilities. HUB Cycling offers Organizational Members an additional 10% discount on workplace workshops. 

Cycling is a health promotion tool that reduces employer costs, lowers absenteeism and turnover, and creates higher productivity, loyalty, and morale. Biking to work also has the unique ability to promote employee health & wellness and environmental sustainability at the same time, helping to make an organization a desirable, sought-after employer.

Bikeability Assessments for Buildings / Workplaces

 

HUB Bike Friendly Business Specialists gather initial data and prepare an assessment framework based on client needs. Then they arrive on site for a targeted assessment of cycling facilities, connections, communications, incentives, and culture.  Our assessments are adaptable to commercial, office, rental, and mixed use facilities.  

 

The assessment includes a score, designating your bikeability level (bronze to platinum), along with recommendations and practical tips for improving your scoring. Clients also receive a Bike Friendly Business Resource Guide, outlining the best practices and support available for business.  HUB Cycling optionally profiles Bikeability Assessment organizations through our annual Bike Awards event.
