During the wet week of October 29 to November 4, 2018, the bi-annual regional competition saw 315 UBC riders on 77 teams collectively ride 18,500 kilometres and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 4,000kg.


Organizing non-profit cycling advocacy group HUB reported that region-wide, nearly 5,500 riders registered to ride a total of 218,228 kilometres.  

And while the precipitation may have kept some fair-weather cyclists from pedaling, this year’s campus commitment saw UBC once again earn the title for Best in Higher Education and Best Workplace (1000+ Employees), showing that cycling year-round at UBC is possible.

Over 200 staff, faculty, students and community members attended UBC’s Celebration Station, held October 30 outside the UBC Bookstore. Celebrating participants and cycling as a method of transportation, the station featured free bike-tune ups, registration with Project 529 anti-bike theft program, information about UBC’s new campus bike share program, and free giveaways and prizes.
