FEATURED EVENTS IN YOUR CITY
It’s the perfect time of year to get your bike out, dust off the cobwebs and hit the road.
And with Bike to Work Week taking place from Monday, May 29 to Sunday, June 4, there has never been a better reason to get your wheels in motion.
Registration is open for HUB Cycling’s bike to work event – it’s free to sign up and you could win a wide range of cool prizes.
This includes a cycling trip for two along Croatia’s Dalmation Coast with Exodus Travels or one of six new bikes. All you have to do is log your bike trips online and register to be in with a chance to win. It couldn’t be easier.
This year more than 12,000 people are expected to register online for the Bike to Work Week event with tens of thousands attending the 75 free outdoor events.
One of these events takes place outdoors and you don’t need a car to attend since it’s a drive-in movie for cyclists. Presented by Vancouver Civic Theatres and HUB Cycling, Bike-in Movie Night means you can ride straight from work or home, getting some exercise in before you chill out and enjoy a movie.
To make it even better, the first screening will be the Steven Spielberg classic E.T., showing at the Queen Elizabeth Plaza on May 27. So gather your friends, buy some treats, and watch the magic unfold at this cool, free event.
During Bike to Work Week, HUB Cycling will be setting up Celebration Stations along bike routes. This means you can enjoy some free drinks, snacks, bike mechanic services, and prize draws.
There are multiple benefits of choosing to use your bike for your daily commute. Michelle Quinn from Richards Buell Sutton LLP Lawyers, says that “great exercise and endless bike routes to choose from” are some of the reasons she chooses to bike to work.
When you log your bike trips online, you’ll also be helping local leaders to improve cycling infrastructure in your community. So, you can help make Metro Vancouver a happier, healthier place to live, work, and play.
Register online at Bike to Work Week to find celebration stations, map their routes, calculate calories burned, and track reductions in greenhouse gas emissions.
