About Us

The Greater Victoria Bike to Work Society is where Bike to Work Week began 24 years ago!

We are a registered non-profit society governed by a volunteer board of directors whose mandate is to encourage and promote the use of the bicycle as a viable form of transportation. We accomplish this by organizing the province's largest annual Bike to Work Week event and teaching Bike Skills courses to children and adults.  

What We Do:

  • Provide bike education and skills courses at schools and workplaces

  • Educate cyclists and the general public about the importance of bike safety

  • Encourage an inclusive and supportive biking community

  • Partner and support local, independent businesses throughout Greater Victoria

  • Work with the local government and community organizations

Who We Are:

Sarah Sproull- Interim Executive Director
