2019 Greater Victoria Bike to Work Week

2019 Greater Victoria Bike to Work Week Celebrates 25 years!

We are thrilled to be celebrating the 25th anniversary of Bike to Work Week! This powerful annual event started right in in Victoria and has since been expanded to dozens of communities throughout the province. Bike to Work Week is a behaviour change program that has a significant impact on commuter behaviour and the transportation environment in Victoria.

For this 25th anniversary event we want to see more participants than ever before. Can we reach 10,000?? We think so – but not without YOUR help. That’s right YOU, the person who already knows how great biking to work is! YOU are integral to getting more people on bikes. This year, we are asking everyone to be a Bike to Work champion by getting at least ONE person who has never participated in Bike to Work Week to register. Yes, that sometimes means stepping out of our comfort zones but so many people are just waiting for that little push – like the encouragement of a friend or colleague – to take part in Bike to Work Week. By helping someone take that first step, you could be making a huge difference – your encouragement can literally change the course of someone’s life! 

For the 25th anniversary our theme is Link up! Love your commute.

We want to bring the focus back to the core of this program which is to draw new people to commuter cycling. As always, we have many incentives for participants including over $20,000 in prizes to be won. We are excited to announce that for the 25th anniversary event we have some extra special prizes to give away.

  1. Bike-a-day Giveaway: we are giving away one bike per day to registered participants during Bike to Work Week
  2. New recruit prize: Trip for 2 to Whistler including airfare!  Any NEW participant PLUS the person who recruited them is eligible for this prize. Send us an email including the name of the new participant AND the person who recruited them. Both will be entered into this prize draw.
