Join Bike to Work Week In Vancouver & BC The weather has been cooperating and there is still plenty of time to pull out your two-wheeler bicycle, tune it up and participate in the Bike to Work Week in BC. Both Bike to Work BC and HUB are coordinating and promoting Bike to Work week activities.

From May 27th to June 2, thousands of people across BC will be participating in the Bike to Work Week. According to the HUB Bike to Work website, Metro Vancouver has already signed up 690 participants who have logged an amazing 22,888 kms.
