About HUB Cycling

HUB Cycling is a charitable non-profit organization, established to improve cycling conditions in Metro Vancouver. We strive to remove barriers to cycling and improve the quality of our communities, our health, the environment, and local economies. We make cycling better through education, action, and events.

About Bike to Shop Days

Bike to Shop Days is a free community event that provides tips about the gear, techniques and routes that allow participants to easily use their bicycles for shopping trips! This three day long event includes route maps for shopping, guided rides, discounts at local shops around Metro Vancouver and celebration stations with cycling information, snacks, and free bike tune-ups. Registration grants access to discounts at over 100 shops across Metro Vancouver and allows folks to be eligible to win a grand prize. The event will take place from June 22-June 24 and there will be 6 celebration stations located across Metro Vancouver and a few community stations located in other neighbourhoods. Discount providers are also located across the city! The aim of the event is to educate people about how to shop by bike and highlight how bikes are good for business.
