Bike to Shop Day on August 13

Jul 29, 2016

Join us for HUB’s first annual Bike to Shop Day! This one-day event will celebrate cycling for transportation in a new way, by showing how making shopping trips by bike can be fun, easy and convenient.

On August 13th, ride and shop at local businesses to join in the fun! HUB will be hosting celebration stations near popular shopping destinations in Vancouver with free snacks, drinks, prizes, bike mechanics, and tips on how to carry items by bike.

Get involved by visiting our stations, stopping at participating stores on the HUB Bike to Shop Passport, joining in one of our themed rides to visit stores that support biking, or simply consider biking to do your daily shopping and show your support!
