Go by Bike Week

Go By Bike Week

Updated for Go By Bike Week Spring 2024! Let's get cycling!

Whether you’re a regular cyclist or a novice, Go by Bike Week is a great way to get healthy while reducing your carbon footprint.  

HUB Cycling, in collaboration with GoByBikeBC, is promoting the many benefits of cycling by encouraging everyone to switch up their mode of transportation to two wheels. Log your trips online through the GoByBikeBC website for a chance to win great prizes, track your kilometers, and see how many greenhouse gas emissions you’ve saved. You’re also encouraged to gather your colleagues and compete as a team for a chance to be awarded the coveted UBC trophy. 

Here’s how it works:  

  • Visit the GoByBikeBC website to register your personal account. This is where you'll be logging all your rides!
  • Select "Join or Create a Team", which you can find on the left side of the page.
    • If you're starting a team, be sure to join the organization "University of British Columbia - UBC (Point Grey Campus)", unless your department has a different organization already named and made.
    • If you are a solo rider, please join the "UBC Solo Riders" team to ensure your mileage is captured. 
    • If you registered in the past, you do not need to re-register, simply login and record a trip after the official launch to be considered a participant.
  • If you are registering on behalf of your team, please ensure that your team membership (from previous years) is up-to-date to ensure accurate calculations of UBC Go By Bike winners. 
  • Encourage your colleagues to join your team to compete for the chance to get your name permanently enshrined on the Go By Bike Week webpage. Motivate your family and friends to participate as well for a chance to win great prizes from HUB. 
  • Start biking! All trips count whether you’re biking to work, the grocery store or going for a quick ride in your neighborhood between Zoom meetings. Log your trips to be entered to win amazing prizes from HUB Cycling. Each day you log, you'll be entered into HUB’s daily giveaway for bikes, gear, and more! The more times you log a trip, the greater your chances of winning the daily prize.
