Each year, UBC joins the region for a week in Spring and Fall to encourage and celebrate commuting by bike.
There's no better time to start biking to UBC than Bike to Work (and School) Week! Join your cycling colleagues on the roads and start your day with a smile. Register and log your rides at btww.ca.
About Bike to Work (and School) Week
Bike to Work (and School) Week is a great way to get healthy, energized at work, and reduce your carbon footprint. You can also win prizes and help UBC defend its place as regional champion for Best Workplace 1000+ and Best in Higher Education!
Participating is free, quick and easy:
- Register online with HUB
- Choose your workplace – “University of British Columbia-UBC” – then join a team or create your own.
- Map your route to work.
- Log your route with HUB each day you ride
If you already registered in a previous Bike to Work (and School) Week, simply log in and log a trip during the celebration dates to be considered a participant. Encourage your colleagues and friends to join your team! Logging trips is easy and will track your kilometres cycled, emissions saved and calories burned.
If you are a seasoned cyclist, perhaps it’s time to think about your bragging rights? We need competitive riders to help UBC defend our champion status.
NEW IN 2019: Win a trophy for the team with the highest number of trips/rider, with teams over 10 riders. Congratulations to MSL, the winning department for Spring 2019.
Great reasons to participate:
- Feel energized
- Save money
- Get to where you're going faster
- Enter to win prizes (including new bikes, and even a free trip)
Every Bike To Work Week has a Celebration Station so you can celebrate with your fellow cyclists. It's a great event to treat your bike to a free tune-up, pick up some bike resources, and enter for the chance to win cool prizes like a bike lock. Plus, you can register your bike with Project 529, making it easier to recover if it goes missing.
