One of Hub Cycling‘s most popular bi-annual celebrations has returned to Metro Vancouver a little earlier.

From September 28 to October 2, Bike to Work Week will take place across the region, with thousands of participants expected to join.

“Whether they’re an essential worker commuting to work, someone who works from home, someone who is in-between roles, or a parent juggling work while home-schooling — the bicycle has a place in everyone’s life,” says HUB Cycling.

The week-long celebration includes both in-person and digital events. Physical events will include Knowledge HUBs, allowing for quick bike fixes and cycling information, while digital events include webinars, tips on cycling, and plenty of amazing prizes.

Some of the prizes up for grabs include passes to Scandinave Spa, a Ryders Eyewear prize pack, a Striker kids balance bikes, and service vouchers to Dunbar Cycles.

This year, a number of local leaders, including MLAs, city councillors, and even the mayor of Coquitlam, will also be participating.

Bike to School week will also be taking place at the same time, offering activities and events for students of all ages and abilities. In 2019, 124 Metro Vancouver schools participated, with more than 32,000 bike trips completed over the course of the event.
