Go By Bike Week
May 31st - June 6th, 2021
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 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 HUB Cycling website for a chance to win HUB's daily giveaways, 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.
