HUB: Your Cycling Connection is a volunteer-run non-profit society whose members work to improve conditions for cycling in the Lower Mainland. HUB believes that increased bicycle use has the potential to reduce traffic congestion, improve our health, and enhance our urban environment. HUB is behind Bike to Work Week, Streetwise Cycling courses, and bike safety education programs for children. Since 1998, the organization has successfully worked to get things done for cyclists in the Lower Mainland. For information about HUB, click here.
HUB: Your Cycling Connection organized the first Bike to Work Week program in 2007, after grassroots Bike to Work efforts that came from the North Shore.

To change team leaders, the old team leader (or you, if you have their log-in details) should go to:
This is a internet connection issue. If you have a slow server provider, this may happen and the functions on your computer may be slower than normal.
The location category is meant to be a way for other team members to quickly recognize the right team location without looking at the full address. We also use the Location for our Results displays (along with Organization and Team Name), instead of listing the entire address. Although we need the team address to send posters and resources, teams may be easier for other participants to find when these broader location names are included.
Here is an example:
Organization: Simon Fraser University
Location: Harbour Centre campus
Address: 515 W. Hastings St.
Postal Code: V6B 5K3
Team Name: Urban Studies Cyclists
Commuter stations are set up along bike routes every morning and evening of Bike to Work Week. There are free snacks, drinks and coffee, plus you can get your bike tuned up for free by our helpful onsite bike mechanics, and get your motivation primed with prizes and surprises. At the commuter stations, you can meet other cyclists, share successes, and pick up a bike map before you push off and pedal your way to the office or home. Commuter stations generally run from 6:30-8am and 4-6pm. Check the schedule and map to see where they are each day because they move around.
You can use any type of bike to ride to work. The important things are that it is comfortable and safe. Make sure it is the right size for you. Your leg should be barely bent if you are sitting on the seat with the pedal at the bottom of its rotation. Check the brakes. Pump the tires to the recommended pressure which can be found written on the side of the tire. Make sure that you have lights for your bike, so you can be seen by others and you can see them, and fenders, to avoid water spraying up.
