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 Work Week & Bike to Shop Days

Bike to Work Week is a bi-annual community event that celebrates bike commuting across Metro Vancouver. HUB hosts motivational Celebration Stations on high-traffic bike paths where cyclists can stop on their morning or afternoon commute for coffee, snacks, bike tuning from mechanics and daily draws for prizes. Participants are encouraged to sign up and log their trips online as this helps us show the importance of cycling growth when we push for cycling improvements. The goal of the event is to increase the health, sustainability and livability of Metro Vancouver through active transportation.

Bike to Shop Days shows how easy and fun it is to visit shops, cafes, or restaurants by bike. Here we provide tips about the gear, techniques and routes that allow participants to easily use their bicycles for shopping trips! This weekend event includes route maps for shopping, guided rides, and celebration stations with cycling information, snacks, and free bike tune-ups.

Bike to Work Week celebrations run from May 27 - 31 and then Bike to Shop Days are on June 1 - 2.
